I believe it was George Bernard Shaw who opined, "I learned long ago never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it."
That is sound advice! And since our "flesh" is a real pig (e.g., Eph. 4:19), we need to remember Ephesians 6:12 and walk in Galatians 2:20.
I know, that sort of sounds like "code words"--unless you meditate on those verses a bit!
