The inevitability of conflict is addressed in the Song of Solomon. Nearly two chapters are devoted to a “fight” between Solomon and his bride. The result of the conflict was a deeper and better marriage, and therefore, we are going to take a close look at the six stages of their conflict.
- Stage One: Both Parties Feel Harmed
- Stage Two: A Change of Heart
- Stage Three: Reaching Out to Make Amends
- Stage Four: Communication
- Stage Five: Forgiveness
- Stage Six: Greater Closeness and Joy
We’ll dive into each one of these stages over the coming weeks in order to gain a good understanding of how to handle conflict.
