He who is of a greedy spirit stirs up strife, but he who puts his trust in the Lord shall be enriched and blessed.
— Proverbs 28:25 (AMPC)
Probably 80 percent of the places we visit in our ministry have church members who are riddled with strife. Strife is the devil’s tool against us. It takes personal self-control to stay out of strife.
If you want to keep peace, you can’t always say everything you want to say. Sometimes you have to control yourself and apologize even when there is nothing in you that wants to do so. But if you sow the godly principle of harmony and unity today, a time will come when you will reap the blessings of all it can bring to you.
Prayer of the Day: Father, help me to immediately recognize and avoid strife, and to always walk in peace and self-control, amen.
