Read: Philippians 4:2-3

I admit, this is an odd passage to choose for a daily devotional. As I read it again, it struck me in a new way.

Conflict is a part of life. It happens in families, neighborhoods, churches, jobs, committees and teams. It isn’t the conflict that is the problem. It is that we don’t settle our disagreements.

Today as you get ready to be in a community of believers, settle your disagreements. Matthew 5:23-24 give helpful advice about the timing of settling disputes. So today, if you realize someone has something against you, go and work it out and then come to offer your sacrifice of praise.
