Motivational and devotional. Good job in showing how we should 'speak truth in love' to settle misunderstandings, not avoid them.
I enjoyed this essay on disagreement and avoiding conflict. It is true sometimes people feel to be nice, we must avoid conflict. But actually the opposite is quite true. I think you could have really hit your message by giving an example of Jesus. He without sin cast the first stone would be a great example of your message. He wasn't avoiding conflict there--just the opposite. You did a nice job wrapping up your points and coming back to the beginning.

Great essay. I liked the fact that you presented. We are taught to always be peace makers, which does lead to a lot of real problems that would not exist if the right attitude, accompanied with standing for your beliefs, were exercised. Acquiescence leads to domination.
