Choose Your Battles

Proverbs 22:3

The prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it.

One of my mentors once shared that not all battles belong to you; it is important to learn to overlook offense. Avoiding individuals who test your patience is not an act of cowardice but a way to create necessary space to prevent wrongdoing. As we grow and age, we come to understand the value of letting go and realize that quality often surpasses quantity when it comes to friendships. A larger bank account is not synonymous with true wealth, and popularity does not equate to goodness. This reflects prudence, a form of wisdom that involves stepping back, selecting battles wisely, and striving for a purposeful and fulfilling life.

Jesus said in Matthew 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

Living a life in accordance with Jesus's teachings may not be without challenges, as we can face rejection not only from acquaintances but also loved ones. However, Jesus Christ assures us of wisdom and urges us to focus on what truly holds significance in life—things, events, and people that truly matter. He invites us to find solace in Him, offering a rest unlike that of the world. In the midst of trials and chaos, we find hope in the assurance that earthly struggles are not eternal. Indeed, a promise awaits us of a paradise where tears and sorrows cease, and where sin and despair no longer hold sway.

May blessings be upon everyone.
