  • No, I'm not talking about avoiding. Avoiding just postpones conflict, it doesn't resolve it. I'm suggesting that not everything is worth a conflict. The biblical proverb warns, "Starting a quarrel is like breaching a dam; so drop the matter before a dispute breaks out." Look, not everything is a hill to die on especially if your marriage or family is already stressed. If you can be generous with mercy, let it go.

Ron: Sometimes, the best way to avoid a conflict is to just drop it.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: No, I’m not talking about avoiding. Avoiding just postpones conflict, it doesn’t resolve it. I’m suggesting that not everything is worth a conflict. A Jamaican proverb wisely suggests, “Before you marry keep both eyes open; after marriage shut one.” That sounds like the biblical proverb that warns, “Starting a quarrel is like breaching a dam; so drop the matter before a dispute breaks out.”

Look, not everything is a hill to die on especially if your marriage or family is already stressed. If you can be generous with mercy, let it go. Shutting one eye does everyone a favor. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
