It Takes Two to Make a Quarrel

Don and Joe, who were good friends, decided to have a quarrel one day. They thought it would be fun.
“I’ll pick up a stick,” said Joe, “and say it’s mine. Then you say it’s yours, and then we’ll have a fight.”
So Joe started: “This stick is mine!” he shouted.
Don thought for a while and then replied, “Okay, you can have it!”
So the quarrel ended before it had a chance to begin. We know it always takes two to make a quarrel. It is far better to give in than to cause an argument by trying to have your own way. “Let each esteem other better than themselves.” Philippians 2:33Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. (Philippians 2:3). “Let there be no strife.” Genesis 13:88And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren. (Genesis 13:8).
