Recognizing What Battles To Fight…

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.

  1. Can U find this scripture for me???I just don’t know ‘where’ the scripture is that supports these words he said:

    ONE TIME IN THE OLD TESTAMENT A PROPHET WAS WALKING DOWN THE STREET AND THIS YOUNG MAN STARTED MAKING FUN OF HIM

    CALLING HIM NAMES – EVEN THROWING ROCKS
    HE FOLLOWED HIM EVERYWHERE THAT HE WENT

    JUST PESTERING HIM – TRYIN TO PICK A FIGHT – TRYIN TO AGGRAVATE HIM.

    FINALLY THE MEN WITH THE PROPHET SAID ‘DO YOU WANT US TO PUT A STOP TO HIM? DO YOU WANT US TO SHUT HIM UP? HE IS A REAL PAIN.

    I LOVE THE WAY THE PROPHET ANSWERED: “NO LET HIM KEEP TALKING-
    MAYBE GOD WILL HEAR HIM AND BLESS ME FOR IT.
