You Know They Produce Quarrels.

WRONG WALK

Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels. 2 Timothy 2:23 New King James Version

I have met many whose pure joy it is to start arguments for the sole purpose of watching others get upset. They are called narcissists.

The sad thing is that when you look into their lives they are very sad and lonely. That is because they have low self esteem and care about no one but themselves.

When you surround your self with yourself you have no on but yourself. Joseph- Anthony: Green.

I do not play their games. I only gracefully and wisely speak the truth with them. Then it is asked why they insist on being trouble makers? Is it because your own life is so miserable that you are not happy unless you make those around you miserable as well? I ask them if they would like to get help with counseling and most turn and run. I do not say this in a sarcastic nor accusing manner but with grace and humbleness. If they truly desire help I have the resources to help them and will work with them to get that help.

They know they have these problems but do not want to face them nor resolve them.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Shalom (God is our peace) instill in me a heart filled with Your divine peace whenever I encounter the pitiful lost souls that hearts are filled with the vile of hatred and anger. Please bless me with the wisdom, grace and meekfulness to guide them to the help they so desperately need. I humbly request this in the name of the prince of peace who always kept His cool when under attack and replied with wisdom, gracefulness and meekness Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. Having played online video games so much of my life, I am quite familiar with these types, which are called “trolls” in-game. They live only to say things that are disruptive and designed to produce a reaction (they don’t care what kind). It seems to be the classic case of the child who doesn’t care what kind of attention they get as long as they get some.

    I’ve also seen those in Christian online communities; they come and post something antagonistic. “Bomb and run” is the thinking. Then come back and see if they get a response. The usual attitude is, “don’t feed the trolls,” which I think is generally wise, but can also be difficult because they are individuals who need Christ just as much as anyone. But are they actually interested in Him or just in arguments… Could you really talk to them anyway?

    I’m glad you pray to be a peacemaker among such people, Joseph. 🙂

    • I have experienced a lot of trolls.

      I just give them a Bible verse and explain it to them and its application in their live. It convicts them and either they open up to me and I help them get counselling or they leave me alone.

      If they insist upon continuing their stupid little game they are informed if it continues the police will be contacted and they can discus it with them. Then they leave me alone.

      I continue to pray for them.

  2. “Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. Respect what is right in the sight of all men. If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.” (Rom. 12: 17-18)

    • The important part of that verse is that so far as depend upon you. There are some that are toxic and the only way to stay immune from their toxin is to respectfully keep your distance from them.

      • Amen…couldn’t have said it any better! That would be exactly what the Lord would want us to do! Thank you for clarifying that point!

        ~Steve

      • You are very welcome beloved brother.

        Yes we are to be forgiving and to be gracious but that does not mean we are to be door mats for others to walk over. Jesus certainly never allowed anyone to walk all over Him.

      • “Whoever does not receive you, nor heed your words…shake the dust off your feet.”
        (Matthew 10:14)

        We spread the gospel to others, but they have to be willing to listen and receive it. If they refuse, or “judge” us because of this, Jesus doesn’t expect us to take it.

        If people treat us badly as we do what the Lord commands, and we can’t get them to stop or change, we are told to just walk away. Their situation would then be in His hands…

        ~Steve

      • That is very true.

        I try to give the message with wisdom, gracefulness and meekfulness. Then leave the rest up to the Holy Spirit. I may not seed the fruition, it may happen much later or maybe not at all.

      • Again you have spoken the simple truth. Ours is not to “bible thump” our way around, but to speak with respect…
        ( 1 Pet. 3:15).

        We spread the seed, God gives the increase.

        ~Steve

      • That is so very true.
