THE LORD'S SERVANT MUST NOT QUARREL

2 Tim 2:24
And the Lord's servant must not quarrel; instead, he must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. [NIV]

As soon as Debbie reported for her new posting, she noticed that her colleague with whom she shared an office was very disrespectful. It was as if the woman was looking for every opportunity to quarrel with her. Unknown to Debbie, all the other workers in that office knew of Mrs. Kolade’s quarrelsome behavior. She had quarreled with everyone who shared an office with her. No one in the office wanted to share an office with Mrs. Kolade, but since Debbie was posted newly to that station, she didn’t object to sharing office with her. Debbie refused to quarrel.

As time went on, Debbie earned the respect of everyone in the office because they waited and waited but did not hear any raised voices from her office. Because of this, Debbie could lead people in that office to the Lord.

Have you ever come across quarrelsome Christians? It is sad that some Christians are quarrelsome. Some Christian couples even are very quarrelsome and harsh to one another. I have noticed that quarrelling does not produce any good fruit; it only creates more separation and negative feelings.

When you are kind in dealing with people, you would never quarrel. A kind person treats others the way he would want to be treated. You don’t want others to raise their voices at you and say hurtful things to you do you? You want people to be understanding and sensitive to your feelings don’t you?

If you are truly kind in heart and meek, the need to quarrel with people will not present itself.

Go into today determined to avoid quarrels because you are a servant of God. Remember that it takes two people to quarrel. 

Prayer: Ask God to give you a heart that is truly kind and meek.
