TOPIC: Conflict Management In The Family (RCCG Sunday School Student Manual 15 May 2022)

MEMORY VERSE: “Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.” – Romans 12:17

BIBLE PASSAGE: Genesis 13:7-9 (KJV) (RCCG Sunday School Student Manual 15 May 2022)

7 And there was a strife between the herdmen of Abram’s cattle and the herdmen of Lot’s cattle: and the Canaanite and the Perizzite dwelled then in the land.

8 And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren.

9 Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: A family is defined as a group of people related by blood, marriage, adoption or custom. Generally, conflict can be defined as strong disagreement between persons or groups that often results in heated arguments. Conflict management is the practice of being able to identify and handle conflicts 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 a good family growth.
