Words to Remember Before Arguing

Have you every gotten into an argument knowing from the get-go that there was no way you were going to change your opponent's mind. The whole thing, point by counterpoint, was a complete waste of time that wasn't going to get either of you anything other than extremely frustrated, suffering from high blood pressure? Yep, been there, done that. It's extremely ill-advised, even if it is the exercise of choice on every social media comments section, or so it seems.

Before entering into another fruitless fray, remember the words of wisdom from Proverbs 20:3:

"It is honorable to refrain from strife, but every fool is quick to quarrel." 

Words to live by. They could save us all many hours to be more wisely spent.
