There is no one on this earth that has traveled through life free from dealing with disputes and disagreements. And God knows! That is why He gives us plenty of KJV Bible verses that deal with disputes and disagreements. Take a look at what I found:

Avoid Disagreements Through Proper Thinking and Speaking

Leviticus 19:18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.

Proverbs 12:18 There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: But the tongue of the wise is health.

Matthew 18:15–17 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.

Romans 12:17–21 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

1 Corinthians 13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

Hebrews 12:14–16 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled; Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.

James 1:19–20 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.

James 4:11 Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.

1 John 3:18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

How to Handle Disputes

But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.

John 15:17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.

1 Corinthians 6:1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?

Ephesians 4:26–27 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil.

Philippians 2:4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.

1 Peter 3:8–9 Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.

Remember the End Goal – Forgiveness and Restoration

Proverbs 16:7 When a man’s ways please the LORD, He maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.

Matthew 6:14–15 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Final Thoughts 

The way to avoid disputes and disagreements is to be sure you are thinking on the right things and being careful what you say. Your words are powerful and when they are delivered wrong, you can stir up strife. We also have plenty of guidance from the Bible on how to conduct ourselves when we find that we are in the midst of an argument. Finally, don’t ever lose sight of the importance of forgiveness and restoration. Relationships need to be cultivated and once you get rid of the weeds you need to feed them with tender love and care.
