When To Fight
Sun Tzu, The Art of War
I don't really like conflict. But sometimes, you simply have to fight for what you believe. You have to stand your ground. Or else, you'll end up losing that ground.
So, if I seem to be picking a fight, it's got to be because it's something I feel quite strongly about...
And yet, it's really difficult to work out when to fight and when not to fight.
Because I always seem to get it wrong. Or so I keep being told. Either I'm too 'laid back' or I'm too 'uptight'.
So, bear with me. And forgive me. Because I'm trying to get a balance. I'm trying to get it right. (sigh).
Ephesians 4:31-32 (NIV)
Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
Colossians 3:13 New International Version (NIV)
Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
