Memory Verse: “Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men”- Romans 12:17.

Introduction

A family is defined as a group of people related by blood, marriage, adoption or custom. Generally, conflict can be defined as a solid disagreement between persons or groups that often results in heated arguments. Conflict management is the practice of being able to identify and handle conflict sensibly, fairly and efficiently. Conflict is inevitable. No relationship is perfect or conflict-free, but conflict when managed biblically can serve as a catalyst for change and opportunity for good family growth.
