How to deal with a relative who sends a lot of long Islamic texts? I say Jazakallahukhayran every now and then, but my father who is less religious feels irritated (possibly religiously inferior) by this person. I know my beard makes him feel this sometimes. I also feel inferior sometimes when someone with higher iman lectures me.

There’s no need to feel inferior. You must work hard to reach higher level of iman. Rejecting truth and feeling this way about Islamic knowledge is a very negative sign of hypocrisy.
