"The start of a quarrel is like a leak in a dam, so stop it before it bursts."
STOP THE LEAK!
One of the biggest challenges we all face is getting along with others. We all have different personalities, temperaments, and come from different backgrounds. When somebody doesn't agree with you, or they are doing what you don't like, it's easy to quarrel with them to prove your point. Before long you are at odds, mad at each other, and offended. At this point you feel the tension and stress. You have allowed strife in! When you let your guard down and say things that are disrespectful, hurtful, and demeaning, you damage your relationship and open the door to strife. That's why Scripture says, Give no place to the enemy. Strife can't just come in whenever it wants; you have to open the door. To never have an argument or say a wrong word is not reality, but when you allow strife to become common and you are constantly arguing, saying hurtful things, being disrespectful, you are headed down the wrong path. Stop strife before it bursts and break relationships apart.
Thank God for the promise of blessedness when you take the high road and be the peacemaker in any situation. Be able to distinguish the destructive power of strife and give no place for it. Amen!
Keep the faith, knowing blessings will come and overtake you in Jesus name! Hallelujah! Amen!!! 🙏🏾🙏🏾
