Proverbs 26:20, 21 – Without wood a fire goes out; without gossip a quarrel dies down. As charcoal to embers and as wood to fire, so is a quarrelsome man for kindling strife. (NIV 1978)
My Musings – Sometimes we need to ask if the continuing quarrel is due to the other person (who may clearly be in the wrong) or to our fueling of the fire.
My Advice – Sometimes, it will be better to remain quiet in order to end a quarrel. The temptation will be high to “not give in,” but usually in these types of situations you end up losing when you win or the victory is just not worth winning. Make sure don’t keep the strife going due to stubborn pride.
