Just Walk Away by Ennis Smith
“But refuse (shut your mind against, have nothing to do with) trifling (ill-informed, unedifying, stupid) controversies over ignorant questionings, for you know that they foster strife and breed quarrels.” 2 Timothy 2:23 (AMP)
God’s word notes that Satan’s goal is to steal, kill and destroy. He doesn’t always use over-the-top, easy-to-recognize theatrics to pull us out of God’s will. No. More often, he uses subtle annoyances to first steal our peace. Minor arguments and petty irritations between loved ones and brethren play on our human sensibilities, distracting us from our focus on God’s will.
Paul warned Timothy to recognize silly issues and questionings, and to refuse engagement, lest he be consumed by strife and contention. He knew Satan’s antics all too well. In warning Timothy, he was also warning the body of Christ today.
Sometimes, we need to walk away from potential conflicts if they are not righteous. By engaging in nonsensical confrontation, we run the risk of inadvertently falling into Satan’s trappings. It’s okay to walk away from controversy that threatens your peace. The source just might be Satan at work, using someone close to your heart, to steal your peace. Once your peace is gone, it’s easier for him to kill your spirit and destroy your faith. Learn when to just walk away. Time and space may be the remedy for peaceful resolution.
