“You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’ But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire. So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. Come to terms quickly with your accuser while you are going with him to court, lest your accuser hand you over to the judge, and the judge to the guard, and you be put in prison. Truly, I say to you, you will never get out until you have paid the last penny.

Conflict is inevitable and can be necessary at times. The problem comes in the way we may seek to resolve conflicts. Conflicts can develop character. Conflict is expected and can produce positive changes. Conflicts make life interesting. Since we are so diverse in our thinking, it is impossible that we are always going to agree. The resolution of conflict was so important that Jesus commanded that if you know that your brother has anything against you, you should go and make peace, or your prayers will not be answered. So, who do you need to ask forgiveness from today?
