Stop the Strife-Proverbs 17:14 (NASB)

The beginning of strife is like letting out water, so abandon the quarrel before it breaks out.

                                                 Proverbs 17:14 (NASB)


Lately, I have been listening to a lot of strife. Strife never ends well. I tell others to just keep the peace in their heart and walk away from anyone wanting to quarrel. It does not matter what the disagreement is, I can choose to remain quiet and not get into the middle of it all.

The devil wants to bring division everywhere he can. He stirs up thoughts and past mistakes trying to get others to argue. It is important for me to reorganize when this evil is working. I must turn and walk the other way. When I turn my focus to Christ, He guides me in the right path and fills my heart with peace.


Be encouraged! When strife comes, and you see yourself being drawn in, stop and choose to focus on Christ, the way of peace.
