Brotherly love in action

How easily conflict arises in our daily round of interactions with others. Disrespect, jealousy, malice, rivalry, road rage, hyper-partisanship, and so on flare up, making us sizzle. Recrimination, revenge, turning a cold shoulder, or venting with those sympathetic to us may be a tempting ego-salve. Or sometimes we zip our lip, only to steam silently. And what if the malicious behavior of others threatens our job security or well-being?

How can we learn to handle conflict more prayerfully and effectively? The Bible instructs us with many examples of brotherly love successfully eliminating friction and harmonizing families, friends, and foes.
