Scripture for the day is Proverbs 17:19, 26:20-21

Whoever loves a quarrel loves sin;
    whoever builds a high gate invites destruction.

Without wood a fire goes out;
    without a gossip a quarrel dies down.
21 As charcoal to embers and as wood to fire,
    so is a quarrelsome person for kindling strife.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, I love an argument if I think I can win it, and I hate it if I think I can’t – which shows I am valiant not for truth but for myself. Reproduce in me your spirit of goodwill and gentleness so I won’t “love a quarrel.” Amen.
