Why do we quarrel with others? Our quarrels are caused by our internal passions at war within ourselves. Jesus wants to adjust our hearts so that we move from an argumentative spirit to humility and unity. In the process, we must learn to humble ourselves before God. It’s not always easy; but God is more interested in our character than our comfort. Choose humility, not quarrelsomeness, with God and others. If we do this, we’ll be more like Jesus and less like the world.

 

James 4:1-12
