Just because you’ve seen something, don’t be in a hurry to go to court. For what will you do in the end if your neighbor deals you a shameful defeat? Proverbs 25:7-8.
Conflicts do not have to lead to fighting and to broken relationships. There are ways of dealing with conflicts constructively in order to resolve arguments and disputes amicably, instead of allowing the situations to get out of hand or lead to litigation.
Before filing a lawsuit, it almost always makes sense to look for a solution out of court. This is particularly true in situations where the other party is someone you’ll have to deal with in the future, such as:
- a neighbour
- a former friend
- a relative, or
- a good customer.
