Proverbs 13:10 is so spot on, “Where there is strife, there is pride …” The Message says this, “Arrogant know-it-alls stir up discord …” When you put two people who know it all in the same room, two immovable objects stand in the way of each other. Know it alls are usually not gifted in regard to backing down or admitting that they might be wrong and thus an argument is unavoidable! Why? Because pride has to win. Pride loves to pit one person against another. Folks, no one wants to live in argument mode 24/7 and most people will avoid such relationships!
If we are being avoided, how can we share the greatest story ever told aka the story about Jesus?
