It is not every battle that is worth fighting. Many of the challenges that come our way are simple distractions trying to lure us from our destiny. When we have opportunities to get upset, maybe somebody is talking about us, or our competitor at work is spreading rumors, or your spouse says something they shouldn’t have. We ought to stop and ask ourselves, if I engage in this battle and spend my time and energy trying to strengthen somebody out, defending myself, arguing with a family member, trying to prove that I am right, even if I win this battle, what is the prize going to be? what is the fight going to accomplish?
You see, there are many battles that come across our lives each day, but they simply aren’t worth the fight. The end result is strife, disharmony, bitterness and anger.
Proverbs 20:3 says avoiding a fight is a mark of honor. If you want to honor God and enjoy life, decide to be a peacemaker, be the kind of a person who will avoid unnecessary fight.
If you will be disciplined to fight the battles that do matter, and take the focus off those that are less important, not only will your relationships be better and your home full of peace, but God will bless you because where there is peace God honors that home. Keep on walking in love and God will bless you.
See you at the top!
Yours in Christ,
Apostle Phil Jamela
