"But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless" (Titus 3:9).

Too often, we involve ourselves in irrelevant matters. Sometimes we get preoccupied with juvenile issues. Instead of entertaining situations that don't amount to anything, we should focus on those things that will end up making a difference in our life.
I would dare to say that some of the stuff that's bothering us is of little importance. Some of the things that stress us out aren't relevant to our life. We tend to get distracted by situations that shouldn't concern us. We tend to become frustrated by issues that are insignificant. We have a propensity to focus on things of small magnitude that take us away from dealing with more important matters.
In our text, Paul is encouraging believers to avoid foolish controversies because he understands that they're of little value to the life of a believer. He informs them that they have other issues of importance that need to be addressed for them to allow themselves to become preoccupied with things of little worth.
Avoid getting involved in childish situations. Stay away from getting preoccupied with things that don't really matter. Do not allow yourself to entertain things of little importance because there are too many significant matters that God needs you to address.
