Proverbs 26:21 King James Version (KJV)

21 As coals are to burning coals, and wood to fire; so is a contentious man to kindle strife.

It is amazing how many times I have read a passage in the bible and not notice a scripture. It is like am just going through the motions and not comprehending. In the reading of the Book of Proverbs the contentious woman always jumped out     to me and I heard it preached. Now the verse I am referring to refers to a contentious man. The contentious women is     mentioned twice and the contentious man is mentioned once.

Contentious means to be tending to argument or strife; quarrelsome; causing involving or characterized by argument  or controversy.

Just as a woman can cause arguments and strife, so does the man. Wow!  Stop looking to cause an argument. Stop looking for the wrong in someone. If you look for the wrong, the bad and the ugly, you will find it. All have sinned and fallen short. Seek the good and not the bad. Love forgives a multitude of wrongs.

Be Blessed!
