I was listening to the very revered minister, Desmond Tutu one time. He said, ‘My father always told me, “Don’t raise your voice. Improve your arguments”‘.
Have you ever had an argument with a fool before? It gets nowhere. It goes nowhere. It is just full of shouts and noise. It is devoid of logical reasoning and critical analysis of facts!
Please, my fellow believer, try your best possible not to get into the debates of fools. You will only lose energy and waste precious time.
You see, there are people who are specialized in making illogical arguments. These people are usually loud, and quite harsh. *The fact that you raise your voice does not mean you have raised your thoughts.*
Learn how to stay away from endless debates and arguments. Rather, channel your energy into doing things that are more profitable.
(And I don’t know why we debate on stuff when Google and Wikipedia usually has the answers!)
Recognize such debaters and stay away from them. Be able to identify energy wasters and stay away from them. You don’t need to make an argument out of everything and with everyone.
Be advised. Save your breath. Save your time. Save your energy. And save some dignity. Cos, if you are not careful, by the time the debate is over, all your family members would have been insulted…properly! A word to the wise…..
