Conflicts among siblings

“Those who say, “I love God,” and hate their brothers or sisters, are liars; for those who do not love a brother or sister whom they have seen, cannot love God whom they have not seen.”
1 John 4:20

2 - Reflect
Many people become very stubborn when having an argument. They hold their positions until the last moment and can not give an inch of ground. They get involved in the most epic fights because they have different points of view on the same subject. They do not understand that the other person simply understands that subject in another way, perhaps because of their personal beliefs or their previous experiences. Continuing to be permanently upset when the discussion was about something very small will fill us with bad energy and keep us away from our neighbors.



Sometimes we learn that we must yield and understand our brothers, even if they are wrong, because only by preaching through example will we be more just. We have to act beyond our annoyances or anger, following the word of God the Father. Sibling conflict is not something our Heavenly Father wants for our development as a society. Put aside our differences when we know that the other may not respond in a way that we would have wanted and that will require a greatness of heart as Christians. We need sufficient maturity and the capacity to give our forgiveness sincerely.
