A Word on Conflict

The way you manage your speech can decrease or increase conflict.

  • When someone confronts you, the tone of your reply is key. Aim for a calm, gentle tone, Pro 15:1.  

  • Choose words that convey the situation accurately and truthfully, Pro 15:2. 
  • Speak with the intent to solve the problem rather than place blame, Pro 15:4.

    Good advice. And as the picture adversely suggests, avoid pointing fingers and using “you!” Accusatory language always escalates conflict. As you indicated, blame has no place in peaceful conversation! Thanks for your shared wisdom.
