NASHVILLE (BP) -- This weekly Bible study appears in Baptist Press in a partnership with LifeWay Christian Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention. Through its Leadership and Adult Publishing team, LifeWay publishes Sunday School curricula and additional resources for all age groups.

This week's Bible study is adapted from the Bible Studies For Life curriculum.

Bible Passage: Luke 10:38-42

Discussion Questions:

What is the silliest argument you've ever been a part of? What must you consider when you are deciding between good, better, and best?

Food for Thought:

Conflict is all around us. Sometimes people simply disagree over something trivial; sometimes more serious issues threaten to tear apart relationships. No one is immune to having problems in their relationships. But conflict doesn't guarantee that things will turn out for the worse. In many cases, conflict can lead to stronger relationships and ultimate good.

The Bible is full of stories of people who went through some type of conflict. In the new "When Relationships Collide" series that begins this weekend in Bible Studies For Life, we will discover some principles for dealing with conflict in healthy, God-honoring ways.

Even Christians collide, and that conflict arises because we often have different priorities. But we can honor God even in the midst of trying circumstances by the way we rightly respond to others.
