Facing conflicts!!!
Matthew 5:23-24 Therefore, if you are offering your gift atbtge altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift!!

Matthew 18:15:17 If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over. But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses. If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church, treat them as you would a pagan or a tax collector!!!

One thing is certain: as a leader, you'll face relational conflicts. No leadership model exists that will allow you to avoid them. The question isn't will I face conflicts?, but How can I best manage conflicts when they arise?
When Jesus addressed problems, he tackled them head-on. While delivering the Sermon on the Mount (and later in Matthew 18) he dealt with the issue of conflicts brought about either by others offending us or by our offending them. While the Lord was addressing the problem of sin, there are broader principles at work in His teaching. And no matter which side has caused the problem, the solution is the same, First, go to the person with whom you are experiencing a conflict and address the issue face to face. Avoid involving a third or fourth person, especially if their knowledge of the situation will worsen the problem for the offending individual. Such discussions tend to intensify the conflict and further undermine the relationship.
Second, go to the person quickly. Jesus counseled that if someone is worshipping God and remembers that they offended a friend, it is appropriate to stop right there and go immediately to the offended individual. With those words Jesus made it clear that relational harmony is so important that it must be achieved before effective worship can take place. After all how can a man or woman connect with God when they have unresolved relational issues with a brother or sister?
Effective leaders don't ignore conflict. They manage it by creating an environment in which people are enabled to work through relational friction on a one on one basis. Only after such efforts have failed are others allowed to enter the conflict, and then only for the purpose of bringing about reconciliation. Conflicts can't ve avoided. But they can be managed. And a wise leader will be devoted to learning how to do that!!

Today the Lord truly pressed this issue on my heart when a dear friend and brother in the Lord who is a pastor called me for prayer over conflict I come to you with joy tonight because this friend glows with humility and grace as he shepherds his flock with pure leadership!! If you have found yourself in conflicts with others go to them in a humble way knowing that one view isn't always the view that is seen and all things can ve worked out but will take effort from us and laying aside pride of who is right and who is wrong to just showing love and truth in both views to complete reconciliation!!!

God bless you all tonight, your brother in Christ Jesus, Evangelist John Caleb
