Part 2 – Fight Fair
WE COMMIT TO
1. Seek God
2. Fight fair
3. Have fun
4. Stay pure
5. Never give up
(James 1:19-20) Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20 for man’s anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires.
GOD’S RULES FOR FIGHTING FAIR
Stop to listen carefully.
(James 1:19) …Everyone should be quick to listen…
(Proverbs 18:2) A fool finds no pleasure in understanding but delights in airing his own opinions.

Never call names.
Never raise your voice.
Never get historical.
Never say never or always.
Never threaten divorce.
Never quote your pastor during a fight
Handle your anger righteously.
