Praising and cursing come out of the same mouth. My brothers, these things should
not be this way.

READ: Proverbs 15:1, Romans 12:9-21, Philippians 2:3-5 and James 1:19 (Life Point)
SHARE: Conflict is simply a part of life. The questions is, how do we deal with it? How do you typically deal with conflict? (Fight or Flight) In light of the Scriptures you read, how should Christians handle conflict?
PRAY: Ask the Lord to help you be a genuine peacemaker – “get the log out of your own eye” (Matthew 7:3-5). Pray specifically for those with whom you are in conflict and that restoration may occur. For additional information on Christian peacemaking principles refer to peacemaker.net.
Parents – Refer to the “One Conversation” page for further discussion with your children.
READ: Romans 8:12-18
SHARE: What are some things that members of your family have in common? Maybe you look or act like each other. Members of God’s family also have some things in common. Pastor Joel talked Sunday about three things that are true of people in God’s family. Do you remember those (maybe you can look back at your notes)? From Romans 8:12-18, what do you see that is true of those who are in God’s family?
PRAY: Ask God to help you to not be controlled by sin, captivated by fear or crushed by suffering. You may even ask Him to help you hear His Spirit speak to your heart. Maybe you know a brother or sister in the Lord that is struggling with sin, fear or suffering. Pray for them and ask the Lord to show you how to minister to them.
We are in covenant together to build a culture of peace
within our CHURCH family.
GLBC Church Covenant: We will work and pray for the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. (Matthew 5:9 & John 13:34-35)
