“Avoiding a fight is a mark of honor; only fools insist on quarreling.” Proverbs 20:3 NLT
There are certainly things that are worth fighting for. I believe that key among them is the fight to protect innocent life, the fight for freedom and the fight to become all that God intended you to be. There are many who also fight for their very lives with struggles in health and relationships.
But there is a difference between fighting for principles and life, and quarrelling for preferences or out of selfishness.
The mark of honor comes not from avoiding any type of fight whatsoever, but from yielding in those areas that we may be pressing for our preferences.
Don’t be a fool and continue to quarrel, especially in those relationships that you would otherwise fight to keep.
