James 4:1 ” What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? “

Every minute of every waking hour we have an internal battle raging within. It’s the real struggle between sinfulness and righteousness. And many times sin wins out because we simply want our own way. Paul addressed the issue to Titus when he wrote not to get involved in foolish controversies, genealogies, arguments, and quarrels over the corrupted message that was being preached by some in Crete. (Titus 3:9) Verbal disputes seldom win hearts for the Lord, and hitting people over the top of the head with your Bible will never get them to see your way of thinking. We are to rather submit ourselves to the Lord and watch Him contend for us.
