Lifeline 11. I Can't Argue With That

Friday, January 11, 2013

I Can't Argue With That
The only way to get the best of an argument is to avoid it.

Jer 12:1 You are right, O GOD, and you set things right. I can't argue with that. But I do have some questions: Why do bad people have it so good? Why do con artists make it big? (MSG)

On a personal note, years ago, I read a quote saying, "When arguing with a stupid person, make sure he is not doing the same." When was the last time you walked away or ceased from an argument and why?

  It is because of Holy Spirit that I am now able to walk away from arguing with everyone because I don't need to prove just how stupid that I can be.

I end up saying things that can't be taken back and saying things that make me sound so stupid and dumb and self righteous.

Arguing is not good.

    I try not to argue. My mom likes to argue with me and it can really get on my last nerve. I have learned to let her say her peace and I don't argue. I give it to God.

  Tough one, but I do try to advoid an arguement when I can.
I am the one that says I am sorry way more than spouse, even when I
didn't start it. I am usually more easy gong.
And find more humor in life.
I am glad the LORD don't upbraid us.

    Arguing is the only way some people know how to engage.

    I'm trying to learn the art of walking away from an argument! I don't usually argue with people, I like to say I could be wrong and let it go. But with my kids I seem to think I have to teach them something and before I know it we have a full blown arguement going on! I'm working on it!

    When it can harm you and others fight for the Good or Gods way. Otherwise leave it.

  If I get into a disagreement with someone, I just say I could be wrong. It doesn't matter if you have the last word or not. Agreement is the key.

    Oh how I hate arguing and I will walk away even if I think I am right. It just does no good and the feelings that accompany and argument I can just do without. Have a great day ~ Donna
