Intimidators and Instigators

Have you ever had to put up with a bully or had to be around a quarrelsome person at work or at school? No one likes to be around those types of people for very long. The Apostle Paul instructs a Pastor named Timothy on what to look for in an overseer. He says that an overseer a.k.a pastor/elder/shepherd must not be a bully or be quarrelsome because that reflects immature character and behavior. But this admonishment is not just for Pastors. All Christians are supposed to mature in these areas so that they do not contribute to discord or division so that matters can be settled in a Christlike fashion.
