What is the source of quarrels and conflicts among you? Is not the source your pleasures that wage war in your members?
You lust and do not have; so you commit murder. You are envious and cannot obtain; so you fight and quarrel...
...You do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures.
“That which proceeds out of the man, that is what defiles the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts...
Lk 6:45 KJV
A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.
Prv 4:23 NKJV
Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
The source of conflict is...
My selfishness and the pursuit of my own selfish desires
It's not about...
Me, but them and their best interests.
Replace selfish desires with...
Desires for the best interests of others.
You must die...
To self and separate yourself from your selfish desires.
Phil 2:3-4 KJV
Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
[Walk] with all humility and gentleness, with long suffering, forbearing one another in love
Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
