Steps To Take When You Disagree With Someone Close

Because of the fallen nature of man, conflicts in relationships are a fact of life, even for believers in Christ. Loving communication doesn’t come naturally or easily to anyone. For unbelievers, remedy for conflicts is difficult because without Christ humans do not have the capacity for unselfish love (Ephesians 4:22-32).

Christians, however, have the Bible for instructions in relationships. Applying biblical principles to relationships will enable us to handle conflict most effectively

The first and most important principle in resolving conflict in relationships, especially in marriage, is to love one another as Christ has loved us (John 13:34) and gave Himself for us.Ephesians 5:21-30 describes relationships within families: we are to submit to one another in love and put the needs of others ahead of ours.

This is especially true in marriage where the husband is to love his wife as Christ loved the church and care for her as he cares for his own body. In turn, a wife is to submit to her husband and respect him (Ephesians 5:22,30)
