"If another believer sins against you, go privately and point out the offense. If the other person listens and confesses it, you have won that person back.” (Matthew 18:15, NLT)

“If another believer sins against you…”
Throughout the course of your life, people will get under your skin and make you angry. It might be in the form of hurt. For some, they do it intentionally—it stings and is uncalled for. Others, they do not know they are hurting you—it is unintentional. It may also come in the form of disagreements. You have a certain way to do things and someone else has another way. Rather than it being a one-time situation, it happens often and disagreement creates tension. This tension and those hurts create conflict. Why do we have conflict? Because, we all have opinions and emotions and not everyone thinks alike. So, if you have conflict, “If another believer sins against you…” what does Jesus say to do next? (Continued tomorrow)
