“Whoever corrects a mocker invites insult; whoever rebukes a wicked man incurs abuse. Do not rebuke a mocker or he will hate you; rebuke a wise man and he will love you. Proverbs 9:7-8

And y’all, I’m just not interested in wasting my time on people who just want to fight.Instead, I prefer to focus on those who are truly seeking when they ask questions. Questions are good in many ways because they help us learn, help us understand. But, we need to be careful what sort of arguments we allow ourselves to get into with people who, for lack of better words, just want to fight.
