You’re likely to be challenged today. Someone will attempt to start an argument or draw you into a quarrel. Don’t go. Refuse to feed a contentious spirit. Do not allow it to break your focus. Redirect your energy and stay on track.
Proverbs 15:1 — A soft answer turns away wrath, but grievous words stir up anger.
Colossians 3:13 — Be gentle and forbearing with one another and, if one has a difference (a grievance or complaint) against another, readily pardoning each other; even as the Lord has [freely] forgiven you, so must you also [forgive].
Proverbs 13:10 — By pride and insolence comes only contention, but with the well-advised is skillful and godly Wisdom.
