Some people don't want a reply. They want an ARGUMENT.Giving them your attention just promotes them. Discern.
Sometimes holding your tongue doesn't mean you LOST the ARGUMENT. It could mean you SAVED the relationship.
There's no point in arguing with someone that's already convinced of their ARGUMENT... even if they ARE wrong.
At some point an ARGUMENT becomes pointless. Both sides need to agree to disagree shake hands & move on.
If nobody will listen and nobody wants to learn, it's not a conversation ,it's an ARGUMENT.
Never make winning an ARGUMENT more important than maintaining the relationships you need. Be Wise!
Don't always argue. People will run from you. Times are too hard for people to hang around persons who inundate them with needless ARGUMENTS.
Just because you got the last word in that matter doesn't mean you won the ARGUMENT. It just means someone had sense enough to stop talking before you did.
People that are small in revelation, are usually big in ARGUMENT. Don't argue with blind and less insightful people. Be merciful. They can't see what you are seeing.
After all is said and done, make yourself too busy to engage in needless ARGUMENTS that lead to nowhere.
