A Divisive Person – Titus 3:10-11
Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.
Warn a divisive person once, and then warn him a second time. After that, have nothing to do with him. You may be sure that such a man is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned.
This is not talking about someone who is just bringing new topics to the table for the body to discuss and consider. This is someone who is forcing their opinion on others. Someone who is arguing their point to convince others of their view.
It’s OK to be passionate on a topic, but don’t be forceful. It’s OK if others don’t agree with you. Remember, odds are, you didn’t always believe this way either. Just be patient and pray for those who may not agree with you.
Now, if we see someone acting this way, this verse informs us of what is best for us to do. First, we are told to warn the person. If they persist in their arguing, we are told to warn them a second time. If they continue, avoid them. Simple as that.
Now the question is this, do you know someone you should warn? Or better yet, should someone be warning you?
Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.
