[Songs in the Night - June 25]

Ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. Jude 3

SOMETIMES it might seem like contention for the faith once delivered to the saints for one person to argue with another on scriptural subjects, and yet his real motive in so doing might be pride. Pride is a part of selfishness; therefore in contending for his own ideas one might be cultivating pride. The contention which God would approve is that earnest desire to have whatever God's Word teaches. We must not contend with the tongue improperly, nor speak slanderously. In all of our contentions we should manifest the fruits of the Holy Spirit—gentleness, brotherly kindness, love. Thus the proper contention would not partake of anger, hatred, malice, or strife.
