Today’s passage is Titus 3:9-15. Let’s go!
Titus 3:9 (NIV)
9 But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless.
On verse 9: Whereas focusing on the Gospel is “excellent and profitable for everyone” (v8), quarreling with people who like to talk to cause trouble is “unprofitable and useless” (v9). When read together, verses 8-9 are Paul saying to Titus: Focus on what’s important. Don’t waste your time on what’s not important.
Titus 3:10-11 (NIV)
10 Warn a divisive person once, and then warn him a second time. After that, have nothing to do with him.
11 You may be sure that such a man is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned.
