A Fool is Quick to Quarrel.

ARROGANCE

It is to one’s honor to avoid strife, but every fool is quick to quarrel. Proverbs 20:3 New International Version

Have you ever met those who love to start a fight. They think it is funny to watch you get angry.

Whenever I encounter such perverts I just inform them I do waste my time talking with fools and you are a fool and then walk away. It gets the point across and they watch themselves around me and most times go looking for easier victims.

Whenever they try to befriend me I politely inform them I am not interested as they are nothing but trouble.

 

If I have to work with them and they refuse to work together I just do the work myself and discreetly inform the supervisor of the problem and inform them I refuse to work with the troublemakers again.  They usually do not last long at any jobs for this reason.

As charcoal to embers and as wood to fire, so is a quarrelsome person for kindling strife. Proverbs 26:21 New International Version

They are conceited and understand nothing. They have an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions. 1 Timothy 6:4 New International Version

As for the Gossiping Gerties whenever they come around and try to gossip about someone I just ask them what they say about me when I am not around and then get out a mp3 or something to record the conversation. When they ask me what I am doing I inform them I am recording the conversation to share with the person being talked about so as there is no misunderstanding of what they said (that way they cannot deny they said it). They quickly shut up and leave me alone. It may mean that I do not talk with many but that is okay as it avoids a lot of un-necessary fights.

And you know what?

As they age they become more and more isolated. That is usually when they become homebodies and addicted to TV and shopping and gambling.

I have seen it with a lot of seniors.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer) rescue me from those whose tongues are like vipers (full of poison) and guide my words and actions to convict them of their sin so as to lead to repentance. I humbly pray this in the name of He who did not tolerate such vipers Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                           

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

How to Put the Fire Out.

Image

Where there is no wood, the fire goes out;And where there is no talebearer, strife ceases. Proverbs 26: 18-19 New King James Version                                                                      

Have you ever met a Gossiping Gertie?                                                                                      

You know, they are the ones that when you tell them something and then leave, they burn up the telephone line telling anyone and everyone stupid enough to listen to them.

They love to cause fights. When confronted they always act innocent.                                           

They are as innocent as Lucifer himself.                                                                                    

They are like a wildfire that destroys everything in  their paths.                                            

How many friendships, careers and marriages have they wickedly destroyed?                       

Read in  The Apocalypse of Peter From “The Apocryphal New Testament” what their just rewards shall be.                                                                                            

Whenever I meet a Gossiping Gertie and they try to spread gossip to me I just ask them what they say when I am not there about me. They quickly leave me alone.    If you are a victim of a gossiping Gertie I always confront them in public with their gossip and gracefully and meekfully demand they prove their accusations. If they can not (which of course they can’t) I call them a liar to their face and inform them to keep their big noses out of my life. They hate me but leave me alone and there is a lot more peace in my life.

If you must have a conversation with one of these creatures (because they are family or you are at a meeting or other social function with them) I just keep the conversation generic. Talk about the weather or sports or something like that. In doing so, you are not giving them ammunition to use against you. Be polite and considerate with them.             

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) bless me with providing me with wisdom, grace and meekness whenever I encounter a Gossiping Gertie to both protect myself and to put out their fire of gossip about others. I humbly request this in the name of He who extinguished the fire of those who gossiped about Him Jesus Christ. Amen.                  

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