There is a southern phrase you might have heard from time to time especially if you live in the south that goes like this, "You don't have a dog in the hunt." It implies don't get into an argument when you have no invested interest in the outcome; or don't get in the middle of a argument that doesn't concern you. Some people cannot resist offering an opinion in a matter that doesn't concern them. Or even worse, taking sides in a family argument that doesn't concern them. The Pauline indictment in such matters seems to be, "the way of peace they have not known." Rom. 3:17.
In this season be careful not to get involved in the constant political mud slinging or in strivings among friends and family. Listen to this principle. "No man that wars entangles himself in the affairs of this life." 2 Tim. 2:4. Retain your peace, especially when you don't have a dog in the hunt. - Pastor Rusty
