Keep aloof from strife

“It is an honor for a man to keep aloof from strife, but every fool will be quarreling.” (Proverbs 20:3)

Some might consider a person who backs away from confrontation a coward. The Proverbs say he is worthy of honor. You might even say it is the brave thing to do. Why not be in the same mind as the Sinless One who, “when he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly”?
