From: Reveal toolkit: Conflict and peacebuilding

Tools that help people to understand and analyse conflict, work effectively within a conflict setting, and help communities reduce violent conflict and build sustainable peace

This Bible study is based on Matthew 5:43-48.

It makes the following key points:
