Avoid Stupid Controversies
I am convinced that some people think controversy make the world go round. Why else would it be so prevalent these days?
When my boys were small they often picked at each other. One of their favorite “stages” was the backseat of my Suburban. . . . the longer the trip, the better the venue in their little minds. “Mom, he looked at me!” “Mommmmm, his hand is on my side of the seat!” And who hasn’t experienced this classic, “Mom, he TOUCHED me!”
“But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because they are unprofitable and useless” (Titus 3:9 NIV).
