But FOOLISH AND UNLEARNED QUESTIONS AVOID, knowing that they do gender strife, (cause worthless arguments). And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but BE gentle unto all men , apt to teach, PATIENT, 2 Timothy 2:23-24. Again, Satan is a master deceiver and what better way to "pass the time" them get two people arguing with each other over worthless, wasted, even plain conversations, THAT GO NOWHERE AND ACCOMPLISH NOTHING. I'll illustrate. Let's say you like sports and every Monday evening there's a 3 hour radio talk show with 2 guys talking all about who did what, who got hurt in the last game, and who is the better team, and why. You sit and listen and even tell the radio who your team is and why they are better than all the rest. (Remember, this is just an illustration). That's 3 hours you could be driving and talking to the Lord in Fellowship and Prayer. If you're home, that's time you could be talking to the wife and kids about the Things of the Lord. So the question comes down to this; does the Lord have better Plans for you than you listening to 3 hours of "discussion" you can do nothing about, as you turn away feeling even more "empty" than before you started? Is it possible the Lord just wants some "quiet time" with you before you get busy with other things? He does speak with a still, small, voice, are you "quiet" enough to listen? He actually does have many Things He wants to Talk to you about. As we get closer to the eventual Return of Christ, ARE YOU GETTING READY, ON HIS TERMS??? When Satan comes after your wife and kids, will you be ready to properly defend them, and teach them how to defend themselves? The Bible is ALL ABOUT CHRIST. Are you??? One more minor question, when you finally do meet Christ, will He, or you, remember the score of the last game? And remember, He does want you to BE PATIENT WITH EVERYONE. Are you? Or is there still more room to Grow in Patience? This is another way to, Be Blessed.
