Proverbs 16:27-28 (NIV)
A scoundrel plots evil, and on their lips it is like a scorching fire.A perverse person stirs up conflict, and a gossip separates close friends.
Sadly, there are many people in this world who always seem to get some kind of perverse pleasure out of stirring things up and causing trouble for others. I’m guessing you’re now thinking about those you know who fit that description! They’re not terribly nice people are they?
Jeremiah 1:19 (NIV)
They will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the LORD.
And that is how we overcome those who would conspire to make this world a world full of pointless and meaningless conflicts, just because they get some perverse pleasure from conflict. God can help us overcome sin, because Christ can and will overcome the world!
