Discerning the Unprofitable🤔

Discernment

There are many different things which appear very spiritual yet they are not helpful. First of all, we need discerning eye to differentiate between what is spiritual and unspiritual. There are many spiritual discussions which are profitable, however there are some discussion which are not profitable.

Spiritually Profitable

What I mean by spiritual profitable is that the two individuals or the group involved in the spiritual discourse will derive benefits. Their faith in Jesus Christ will be strengthened. They will be united in the spirit.

Spiritually unprofitable

The meaning of spiritually unprofitable means that the discussion leads to confusion and division. The individuals develop bitterness and they can’t get along well on more common beliefs.

Effects of unprofitable

The unprofitable discussion may lead to unnecessary strife. This kind of deliberations is wastage of precious time and energy which could have been employed for more fruitful endeavour.

Please allow me to quote a scripture from the Holy Bible.

Titus 3:9 NASBS
But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and strife and disputes about the Law, for they are unprofitable and worthless.

Titus and unprofitable

Titus was a young man. Apostle Paul understood that Titus was dragged into some discussion related to Jewish traditions and it resulted in controversies, strife and disputes. Paul emphatically instructed Titus to shun(avoid) these kinds of discussions.

Anopheles

Apostle Paul explained Titus that such discussions although seem to have sense of spiritual argument but eventually it is useless and worthless. The Greek word for unprofitable is “Anopheles.” The name of the mosquito which transmits malaria is Anopheles.

So dear friends, please be on your guard that we all have to avoid being unknowingly or willingly get into arguments over anopheles type of discussions. They don’t benefit anyone. The best way to end such discussions is to avoid them.

Shalom 🕊️

God bless you. Thanks for reading.
