Giving Up The Fight

Someone has said, “You don’t need to attend every fight you’re invited to.” Wise words. There are many you will encounter who are essentially inviting you to a fight. They will do this by their contentious spirit, their biting words, their provocative style or outright attack. Whatever their style, whatever their words, you don’t need to respond in kind. In fact, you have the choice as to how you will respond. Solomon said, “A fool gives vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control” (Proverbs 29:11). Others may say provocative things to us, but we can choose how we will respond. Always keep this in mind.
