Different Techniques in Managing Conflicts FORCING/DOMINATING COLLABORATING/ WIN-WIN COMPROMISING AVOIDING ACCOMMODATING
Church Members Should Learn Conflict Management There are similarities between secular institutions and the Church But when it comes to Conflict Management, the church should be dealt in a very unique way.. We could not PREVENT conflict from coming, but we could manage its effects..
HOW COULD WE MANAGE CONFLICTS 1.By being GENTLE 2.By EDUCATING others 3.By being PATIENT
WE SHOULD BE GENTLE Galatians 6:1 Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should RESTORE him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted. TO RESTORE means to bring back something into its original state..
Our goal is to “lead” that person back to our Lord How can you bring them back?..with harsh words?..with disrespect?..by putting them to shame? Proverbs 15:1 A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
EDUCATE OTHERS Romans 2:21 You then who teach others, do you not teach yourself? While you preach against stealing, do you steal? To Educate.. To Teach.. Or To Enlighten Others.. But first we should learn… and live in accordance with the teachings that we taught..
To teach or make them understand Not to Condemn and Judge Them Matthew 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
PATIENCE Colossians 3:13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. PASENSYA Regardless of the differences between us We should be serving God as one
Pasensya= Patawad Mark 11:26 "But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your transgressions.“ We should be forgiving and be willing to set aside our pride.. We will forfeit our residency in heaven if we will not forgive others..
Conclusion: Be Gentle Always Be Teachable And Teach Others Also Be Patient
