Don't Answer Back

In this culture we falsely believe that we have to have the last word. That it's a sign of strength. We may have that "I'll put you in your place'" or "I'll show you who is in control" mentality. And yes we do that even as Christians. But the truth is that it takes more strength and self control to keep quiet than to give someone a piece of our minds. You see in God's kingdom...weakness is strength and strength is weakness. Why? Because God is our defense. Remember this next time you are engaged in a heated argument with someone. It is impossible to continue to argue with someone who refuses to argue back. That is true strength and what you gain is great peace. It's a beautiful sign of meekness and humility for the believer. This is pleasing to the Lord. Jesus said.."Blessed are the meek -- for they will inherit the earth. " (Mathew 5:5)
