I love this saying: You don’t have to attend every argument you are invited to! With the climate on social media, it can be easy to jump in on the latest debate. Some people even “attend” without an invitation. This Scripture Picture serves as a good reminder!
Do not answer a fool according to his folly, or you yourself will be just like him. Proverbs 26:4 ESV
A fool gives full vent to his spirit, but a wise man quietly holds it back. Proverbs 29:11 ESV
Do not contend with a man for no reason, when he has done you no harm. Proverbs 3:30 ESV
Remind them of these things, and charge them before God not to quarrel about words, which does no good, but only ruins the hearers. 2 Timothy 2:14 ESV

A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. Proverbs 15:1

"You crown the year with a bountiful harvest; even the hard pathways overflow with abundance." Psalm 65:11 NLT
Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us. (2 Timothy 3:16-17 MSG)
