No Need to Argue

Christmas and family arguments often seem to go hand in hand. Maybe this Christmas it can be different...

Proverbs 19:11
Smart people know how to hold their tongue; their grandeur is to forgive and forget.

Proverbs 17:14
The start of a quarrel is like a leak in a dam, so stop it before it bursts.

1 Peter 4:8
Most of all, love each other as if your life depended on it. Love makes up for practically anything.

Ephesians 4:2-3
do everything with humility and discipline—not in fits and starts, but steadily, pouring yourselves out for each other in acts of love, alert at noticing differences and quick at mending fences.

Colossians 3:13
So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It's your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.
