Living In Samaria

2Ti 2:23 Refuse to get involved in inane discussions; they always end up in fights.
2Ti 2:24 God's servant must not be argumentative, but a gentle listener and a teacher who keeps cool,
2Ti 2:25 working firmly but patiently with those who refuse to obey. You never know how or when God might sober them up with a change of heart and a turning to the truth,
2Ti 2:26 enabling them to escape the Devil's trap, where they are caught and held captive, forced to run his errands.
I had been pondering these great scriptures when I ran across a thoughtful article from Christianity Today.
