How to avoid Machlokes

We need to train ourselves to keep quiet & stay out of dissension & quarrels.

In Mishlei it says-

With an abundance of words it is difficult to avoid Pesha ( sin ).

The Chida says
If the Peh is first - you speak too much - that leads to sin.
But if you practice Shtika - quiet -
You will have Shefa - abundance.

The same 3 letters can be rearranged by us -
Shefa or Pesha !
Now may be a good time for a gem of Torah study.
