Resolving Conflict God's Way Work Sheet 2

The Slippery Slope of Conflict
Looking at the previous posts, let's look at the three different ways people respond to conflict:

Escape Responses
Read Genesis 16:1-6 and 1 Samuel 2:22-24, how did the people respond in each case?

Looking again at Genesis 16:6-8, what was Hagar's response to conflict?

What is the most drastic of all responses to conflict (1 Samuel 31:4, Matthew 27:1-10)?

Attack Responses
What type of response do we see in Acts 6:8-15?

Another type of attack response is found in 1 Corinthians 6:1-8, what is it?

What would the ultimate attack response be (Acts 7:54-58)? 

Conciliation Responses 
According to Colossians 1:19-20 what has Christ accomplish for us? 

Personal Peacemaking
Paul reminds us in Colossians 3:12-15 that Christ has enabled us to break the habit of escaping conflict or attacking others. What has He empowered us to become and what should we promote?

Overlook an Offense
What does Proverbs 19:11 challenge us to do?

Reconciliation
What is the instruction of Matthew 5:23-24, Ephesians 5:32?

Negotiation
According to Philippians 2:4 what is the key to reach a settlement that would satisfy everyone envolved?

Assisted Peacemaking
Mediation
What help can be given if someone is not willing to resolve the issue (Matthew 18:16)?

Arbitration
If you and someone else can not come to a voluntary agreement on a material issue, what can you do 
(1 Corinthians 6:4)?

Accountability
If a person who professes to be a Christian refuses to be reconciled and do what is right, what might happen according to Matthew 18:17?
