So much has happened today and it has got me thinking…again. Why do we fight needless battles? I always say “I won’t do battles without spoils”. I know when we hear ‘spoils’, we tend to think of trophies, cups and medals. But sometimes, SPOILS are letting go and being the ‘loser’. So this is where I ask myself and ask you too – would you rather have peace in your world/heart or a trophy gathering dust on your shelf. Think about it.
It’s okay to stand your ground and maintain just so the other person knows there’s more to you than meets the eye, I have that ‘craze’ in me too, but to what end? There’s so much hatred and uncooked beef (grievances) around us already, let’s try in our own little way to spread peace and show love. It makes you more matured than you know. Remember, silence pays off too! Proverbs 17:28 says Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding. (KJV) and Proverbs 12:17 continues “Fools have short fuses and explode all too quickly; the prudent quietly shrug off insults.” (MSG).
So what would you rather be called?
