Resolving Conflict

Matthew 5:20 The Pharisees were interested only on the external act in worship. If a man conformed to the external acts of religion, the envy, malice and secret hatred he might have was not important. Jesus taught the complete opposite.

Verses 23 and 24 It was of more consequence to have the heart right then to perform the outward act.

I John 2:8-11; 4:10 and 11; 4:19-21 If we do not love our spouse then our relationship with God is also tarnished.

Ephesians 4:25 and 26 Do not go to bed angry. Deal with things.

I Corinthians 13:1-3 Godly love is not an emotion or feeling, rather it is a deliberate choice to Obey God's Word above our own thoughts, feelings, emotions, or desires.

I Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is longsuffering - II Peter 3:9 and10; I Peter 3:20; Ephesians 4:1-3;

I Thessalonians 5: 14 and 15; James 5:7-9

Love is kind - Nehemiah 9:17; Romans 2:4; Titus 3:3-5; Ephesians 4:31 and 32 To be kind is a generous, sympathetic, considerate attitude toward others.

Love Envies Not - I Corinthians 1:1-17; 3:1-3

Love vaunteth not itself - I Corinthians 4:6 and 7; 8:1

Love is not unseemly or self-seeking - Philippians 2:2&3

Love is not provoked - Matthew 5:38 and 39

Love does not think evil - Romans 12:9; I Peter 3:8-12

Bears all things - I Corinthians 13:7; I Peter 4:8; Hebrews 12:2 and 3

Love never faileth - I Corinthians 13:8-13

The greatest of these is love!
