When it comes to conflict in relationships, author Ken Sande says there are really only three kinds of people: peace-fakers, peace-breakers, and peace-makers. Peace-breakers are prideful and power up. If they don’t get their way, they blow up, escalating conflict like gas on a flickering flame. Peace-fakers avoid conflict or clam up trying to shove conflict under the rug out of fear. Neither way is healthy. Peace-makers see conflict as an assignment, not an accident. They approach the problem with humility, reasonableness, and seeking wisdom from God (James 3:17-18). They do not intimidate, but they also do not hide. They expect conflict, embrace the opportunity to resolve things biblically, and have an urgency to keep unity in the midst of hard times.
