Quarrel – to disagree angrily.
I wish I could say that I don’t quarrel. Recently events have made me angry enough to 1) write a letter to customer service and 2) succumb to being scammed (really, would you hire someone for a dollar amount, have him do the work and then have him charge you double?).
My son recently told me “Mom, you don’t fight for your rights like you used to do when we were younger.” And it’s true. I get tired of trying to right all the wrongs in this world. Everything seems to be going belly up and sometimes I just want peace.
If only I could follow Timothy’s advice:
“A servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, be able to teach, and be patient with difficult people”. 2 Timothy 2:24 (New Living Translation)
I’m working on it Lord. I’m working on it. I need a daily infusion of the Holy Spirit’s guidance to get me through these days.
