One of life’s simplest yet profoundest wisdom, is the wisdom to choose your battles! Not every win should be your win! Many wars that are not worth your blood, sweat or space! There are battles that even if you win, it won’t matter anything! Simply, jump and pass!
Kai! What a waste of honour! See Prime Minister Heman fuming that gateman Mordecai didn’t salute as his convoy drove past!
“I will deal with that silly boy!”
“Who does that fool think he is?”
“How dare he treat me with disdain?”
And a journey began that ultimately saw Rt. Hon. Heman hanging on some unpolished wooden contraption! He forgot he was in honour, went in search of honour, and ended with shame!
“Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.” – Ps 49:20
How do I know that it is not worth it?
when, no substantial profit or sustainable gain is at stake!
when, to win you must pay a huge prize & do excessive damage!
when, whether you win or not, the real issue will remain unchanged!
when, there you can beat another path to your goal sans contention!
when, the battle will distract from something that ties to your purpose!
Hmmm! Jump & pass o o oh!
“Wake up from your sleep, Climb out of your coffins; Christ will show you the light! “So watch your step. Use your head. “Make the most of every chance you get. These are desperate times! “Don’t live carelessly, unthinkingly. Make sure you understand what the Master wants.” – Eph 5:14-17 (MSG)
“Ka Chineke mezie okwu!” – in other tongues!
Jesus Exceeds Expectations!
