Johnson: contention

Thursday, April 25, 2013
    Feast of Mark the Evangelist
    Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels.
    —2 Timothy 2:23 (NIV)
    [Dr. Johnson to a Quaker:] Oh, let us not be found, when our Master calls us, ripping the lace off our waistcoats, but the spirit of contention from our souls and tongues.
    ... Samuel Johnson (1709-1784), The Life of Samuel Johnson, LL.D., v. IV [1791], James Boswell, New York: Derby & Jackson, 1858, p. 12 fn (see the book)
    See also 2 Tim. 2:23; Matt. 23:23-24; Luke 11:42; 1 Cor. 1:8; 13:2; Tit. 3:9; 1 Tim. 1:3-7; 4:7; 2 Tim. 2:14
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, liberate your people from trivial disputes.
