Today’s Scripture

“It is an honour for a man to cease from strife…”
(Proverbs 20:3, KJV)

Avoid Strife

Strife is a very destructive force. It can creep into relationships by starting small, maybe through a comment or a wrong look from someone, and it can then escalate into something much bigger. But when you choose to cease from strife and overlook an offense, you are acting honorably, and you are honoring God.

How do you avoid strife? Scripture tells us that love covers over many offenses. Love gives people the benefit of the doubt. Maybe someone was short with you at the office, but they may also have a loved one in the hospital. Instead of getting upset, walk in love—be patient, be kind to them. Extend grace.

Today, look for ways to walk in unity with the people in your life. When we walk in unity, there is a commanded blessing. Always avoid strife and choose peace and watch the hand of God move mightily in your life!

A Prayer for Today

“Father, today I choose Your ways. I invite Your plan to unfold in my life. Help me to avoid strife so I can walk in peace and unity and honor You all the days of my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

  2. Strife started when GOD decided to ‘create’ the universe. One can only imagine his expectations.
    GOD made the forbidden fruit, he made Satan, he made Adam and Eve who seemed to be ignorant of good and evil. He purposely set the human race up for failure so that he could look good by ‘saving’ us all in a pathetic attempt to become worthy of our worship and love.


  3. Wise words spoken in this article..
    Strife never gets anyone very far, infact it usually has the opposite effect, just look at countries like Nazi Germany and imperialist Japan when they started the ww2. The end result was total destruction for these two countries and the deaths of millions of people.


  4. Wise words spoken indeed. Only the wise will “overstand” words from the wise.. but for bloggers like #1-3 everything is controversy, even the simplest advice. They have the wrong interpretation mixed up with vain imaginations.
