INTRODUCTION

Conflicts frequently arise within families. Sometimes these difficulties

can be avoided; other times they are unavoidable. Regardless, when

tensions arise, action must be taken to keep the family from becoming

fragmented. Obviously not every instance of conflict is the same.

Circumstances dictate the action that should and or must be taken.

Our lesson for this occasion finds us considering through observation

the Biblical example to be imitated as we learn from the man Joseph

realization of repairing rifts can be realized through his example.

There are fourareas of noteworthy concentration that are suggested

for this strategic success:

1. At odds with what occurred

2. Defusing differences

3. Letting the past go to embrace the future

4. In retrospect it was providential!

slide4

1. Prevention prevents needed repair

A. Desire it… (Genesis 13:8)

B. Require it… (Hebrews 12:14-15)

C. Do it… (Romans 12:17-18)

slide5

2. At odds with what occurred

A. Sometimes the struggle is in what was!

(See Genesis 37:23-28)

1. Joseph did not return evil for evil!

(Remind all of Romans 12:17)

2. Never let our motivation be wrong for what

we do (See Philippians 2:3-5)

3. Put away so we can put on…

(See Ephesians 4:32)

slide6

3. Defusing differences

A. Forgiving failure by releasing the past and

appreciating the present (See Genesis 45:5)

1. So often what men mean for evil God uses

for good! (See Genesis 50:20)

a. What they do doesn’t have to be what

God wants! (Romans 8:28, 31)

B. Do not keep records of wrong!

(Consider / apply Philippians 3:13)

slide7

4. In retrospect it was providential!

A. I thought it was wrong but now I know it

was for right! (Genesis 45:5)

B. The want to be together! (Genesis 45:13,

14-15 [Joseph wanted his dad], Acts 2:42-47)

1. It is not possible for conflicts to be

resolved if folk don’t want to be around

each other!
