EYES ON THE PRIZE-2
1Samuel 17:25 “And the men of Israel said Have ye seen this man that is come up surely to defy Israel is he come up and it shall be, that the man who killeth him, the king will enrich him with great riches, and will give him his daughter, and make his father’s house free in Israel.”
1Samuel 17:26 “And David spake to the men that stood by him, saying What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine, and taketh away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?”
1Samuel 17:27 “And the people answered him after this manner, saying So shall it be done to the man that killeth him.”
What will you gain by fighting your friends and well-wishers? What do you intend to gain by fighting your customers?
Now that you’ve decided to fight every member of your unit in church, what’s going to be your reward? How much will you be paid for hurting them?
Many people will pass through this life and arrive heaven only to discover they’ve fought all the wrong battles in life. One wisdom I learnt early in my Christian journey are these:
Revelations 2:7 “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.”
Revelations 2:11 “…He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.”
Revelations 2:26 “And he that overcometh and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:”
I learnt that, rewards are always on the other side of battles! So I choose my battles with ultimate care. I engage in battles with eternal rewards and “payment”.
I’ve since discovered that one of the things that makes great men and women great are the kind of battles they fight.
To be continued…
