The more We study the word the more we should realize that “Confrontation is godly and is mandated by the Lord; its retaliation that is ungodly and thus forbidden.

Jesus admonished, “Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him” (Luke 17:3). In the context of this verse, to rebuke simply means to tell him to stop. Jesus pulled no punches here; His words are clear and unequivocal. He wants us to deal with relational problems through effective confrontation.” We must work through issues with each other and not just say…I just won’t say anything, I will just keep the peace, I will hold my tongue…


No No No, He wants us to deal with the issue to free ourselves of building that negative energy within our spirits and souls! Communicate communicate communicate and effectively resolve your issues.

“The person who is more spiritually mature is always the one who initiates the reconciliation.”


“Our Challenge
If there is a conflict among us or among our relations…you need to confront and resolve it. We have to understand that it’s vitally important that you are clear minded and have clarity on the purpose or desired outcome. Keep steadfast and consider your true goal in confronting the problem. Do you wish or desire for someone to stop a poor or negative behavior, start a bright and positive behavior, and or make other life changes? Then dear friends lets be clear on what you plan to request”

As always, the answer to life’s problems can be found in the Word of God. Study to show yourselves approves and confront the problem! Remembering…. Confrontation ok! Retaliation…Sin!

Pray up, stand up and live!:)
