Proverbs 3:30

The scripture for today is Proverbs 3:30
Proverbs 3:30 Do not strive with a man without cause if he has done you no harm.
Strife and lawsuits are common today. People engage in these things without thinking of the ramifications of their actions. Often it is done for reasons without justification, usually greed and pride.
“Today, as then, there are those who go to law about imagined wrongs. Unless a man has done us harm that is both real and reparable, we should not stir up trouble or take action against him... It is better to suffer loss than to take a brother to court and so give publicity to the evil that a fellow believer has done us. God is well able to make up to us the loss. But the protection of the law is open to all who have been harmed by the actions of others, and the believer is free to seek protection against the malice of unbelievers (Rom. 13:3, 4).” The SDA Bible Commentary, Vol. 3, pp. 958-959
When the instructions of God’s word are followed, the enemy has no access to our hearts, but “where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.” James 3:16 Strife is a tool of Satan to bring disharmony and disunity. It reflects his character, not the character of Christ. Here is a simple direction from scripture for us to follow: “Let nothing be done through strife or vain glory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than themselves.” Philippians 2:3 If we esteemed others better than ourselves strife would cease and the character of Christ would be seen in us. Strife indicates the presence of the evil one. We are the children of God; we must allow His Spirit to direct us. As we do so, strife will cease. “It is an honor for a man to cease from strife: but every fool will be meddling.” Proverbs 20:3
God bless you as you continue in His service.
