Do we NEED to win?

Hi all

Proverbs chapter 13 verse 10 says this: “By pride comes nothing but strife,
But with the well-advised is wisdom”.

Only through pride does argument last. We primarily see the effects of pride because pride is frequently difficult to detect. God has shown in His Word how to detect it: by looking at the fruits. How do we know false prophets? By their fruits, by what they produce.

One of the greatest spiritual advances that I ever made in my life was when it suddenly dawned on me one day that I did not have to win. God is on His throne, and because He loves me and the other person, God will make available to both of us what the right decision is. If we ask patiently, persevering without anger, and if we continue to meditate and search and spend time with Him, the answer will come. So, arguments stop.

Have a great calm week.

Mark
