Chapter-a-Day Proverbs 26

NOTE: I hit the "save draft" button the other day instead of "Publish". Here is Chapter-a-Day for Prov 26.

Quarrel Like one who seizes a dog by the ears is a passer-by who meddles in a quarrel not his own. Proverbs 26:17 (NIV)

One of my life verses is 1 Thessalonians 4:11. It’s also a reminder to "mind our own business". We are constantly surrounded by interpersonal conflict. People are always having issues with other people, and they are happy to tell us about it. It’s easy to get sucked in, take sides and all of a sudden we’re expending time, thought and energy worrying about a quarrel that isn’t even ours in the first place.

One of the ways we can "lead a quiet life" is by drawing good boundaries between what is "ours" and what is not.
