Proverbs 16:32 NIV
In the grand scheme of things, the little things never mattered. The most important part of the wars of life are determining which battles are yours. Every fight isn’t meant to be fought. Sometimes you just have to let things go. You have to foresee going in where you might be coming out.. if the places you could end up in when you win or you lose are not worth the effort in the fight, you might not want to go to battle. Sometimes the strongest will in a battle, is the will to walk away. Pride makes for an easy loss.
In the war of life in relationships, these small battles play a big part. Sometimes you have to forfeit battles. No need to go in and get scared just to prove a point. Just bow out. Those small problems can be(come) termites in your friendship, eating away at the house you’ve built. The Dad Scout used to always tell me Hey Guy, you can’t worry about things like that. Just keep living.
The best advice he’s ever given. It’s not about being passive; it’s all about being protective. You don’t let disagreements go because you don’t care; you let them go because you do care. No matter what, remember to just keep moving forward. The more you live, the more you learn. The more you know, the more you grow.
When you’re building a house, as long as the foundation, walls, and roof are set-up strong, the rest is minute / just for show. And I will be the first to tell you, the best way to build a house is with humility and honesty. It’s okay to disagree and not see eye-to-eye, but you can’t allow those things to get the best of you. Keep your communication open and give faith in what you’ve got. Don’t fight the battles for what you don’t have; fight the battles for what you do have. In the end, everything will be alright. If everything isn’t alright, then it’s no the end. Be progressive. Be forgiving. Be alright.
