Put them in mind to [5] be no brawlers


Put them in mind to [5] be no brawlers,..”  –  Titus 3:1,2

A “no brawler” is any one who is peaceable. Part of this word comes from the transliterated word for macho.

Someone who is macho is inclined to battle about stuff, He is not a stranger to controversy. He is one who wars, quarrels, wishes to dispute. It could be said that his way is the only way. Such an attitude speaks of selfishness and narcissism (vanity, self-love, self-admiration, self-absorption, self-obsession, conceit, self-centeredness, self-regard, egotism, egoism.).  All of this suggests that he is resistant to the direction of God and God’s ways.

We are not to be of the gang of the world, but rather one of the children of God.
