How To Handle Conflict

Conflicts are a part of everyday life. When I wake up in the morning there can be conflicts at home. When I go to work, there is conflict at the office. When I go to church, there is conflict there. When I go to the store, there is conflict there. When I go to the mission, there is conflict there. Everywhere I turn, there is conflict.
