For the Lord creates every individual so differently; we all have our unique temperament, thoughts, behavioral patterns, and wants. Conflict begins when we can’t get what we want and confront whoever or whatever is the obstacle to getting it; when we want to change someone’s thought to fit our expectation, manage an issue in our favorite way, or win a zero-sum game. Or simply saying when another person isn’t willing to give us what we want, we might find ourselves in conflict. The neverending list reveals that conflict exists everywhere. Yet, we usually downplay the consequence of not managing conflict well. “You want what you don’t have, so you scheme and kill to get it. You are jealous of what others have but can’t get it, so you fight and wage war to take it away from them. – James 4:2:” James warned us that it might lead to murder. Conflict among countries could even lead to open warfare. I am glad that he has provided a way out at the same time: “You don’t have what you want because you don’t ask God for it.” he said. Ask Him, not because He must give, but because He will let us know our real yearning behind our wants, and it is very likely the steadfast love from the Lord.
