Nobody Likes It

today's reading.
Genesis 13:1-18 So Abram went up from Egypt, he and his wife and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the Negeb...
Genesis 13

Genesis 13think about it.
What does Abram teach you about dealing with personal conflict? How does God reward Abram's humility?

the blog.
Nobody likes conflict, but it always happens, and it just seems to be most prevalent in and around family matters. So today Abram is faced with conflict and I love the example he gives us for handling it--He deals with the conflict straight up. No hedging. No anger. He simply addresses Lot with the facts of the situation and voices his desire for a win-win outcome.

So how might you draw on Abram's example the next time conflict surfaces? Was there anything else in Genesis 13 that stood out to you today?
