Bait is a lure which is consciously or unconsciously transferred in a condescending way and causes a negative reaction from us. Don’t bite! Don’t think that you will be reinforcing the other’s behavior by not biting. Instead respond in an emotionally secure way (Christlike – 1 Cor. 13:5-not easily angered). God says to do it this way. He has your back.
