We spend a lot of energy as human beings trying to avoid, minimize, or escape conflict and the pressures that come with it. Good luck. The Bible promises conflict in our broken world and how we respond to it reveals who we really are and what we really believe. The Bible teaches that inner conflicts, while unwelcome, are loaded with God’s purpose and blessing. In fact, when a man wins the inner battles of life he will win more intimacy and closeness with God and people.
