Keeping Strife Away – 19 Bible Verses About Strife

We see more and more strife and division in our nation, communities and our families. I believe this is in part because people do not know what the Bible teaches about strife. These Bible verses about strife will help to solve that problem.

The Bible has a lot to say about how destructive strife is when it is allowed into any area of our lives and the importance of putting an end to that strife. It is my prayer as you read these scriptures you will realize the importance of keeping strife away from your life.

After taking time last night to read all of the verses in the scriptures about strife, it is my prayer that everyone who reads this will stop and take a deep pause, evaluate what is going on in their lives, their communities, and their nation. I pray that reasonable people of good intent will stand up against the glorification of strife. I pray that our country changes direction and starts to make these things the things it focuses on.

Philippians 4:8

8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.
