Avoiding strife brings a man honor, but every fool is quarrelsome. (Pro 20:3 ISV)
Interesting how it is not an inherently honorable nature that leads one to avoid strife, but rather it is the choice to avoid strife (fight, quarrel, etc in other translations) that brings honor. Sometimes it may not be our natural inclination to do the right thing and walk away from petty fights, but if we make the effort to behave in an “unnatural” way that brings about a change in our nature.
Or, we can remain fools and keep blindly following our instincts. After all, quarrels do seem to be natural for humans.
