Not every battle is worth fighting. Many of the challenges that come our way are smiply distractions trying to lure us from our destiny. When we have opportunities to get upset, maybe somebody is talking about us or a competitor at work is spreading rumours or our spouse says something that they shouldn’t have, we ought to stop & ask ourselves, “If I engage in this battle & spend my time & energy trying to straighten somebody out, defending myself, arguing with a family member, trying to prove that I’m right, even if I win this battle, what’s the prize going to be? What’s this fight going to accomplish?”
You see, there are a lot of battles that come across our lives each day but they simply aren’t worth the fight. The end result is strife & disharmony.
Proverbs 20:3 says, “Avoiding a fight is a mark of honour.” If you want to honour God & enjoy your life, decide to be a peacemaker. Be the knid of person that will avoid an unnecessary fight.
If you’ll be disciplined to fight the battles that do matter & take the focus off those that are less important, not only will your relationships be better & your home full of peace but God will bless you because where there’s peace & unity, God commands a blessing.
