Pick your Battles!

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? . . . And Eliab his eldest brother heard when he spake unto the men; and Eliab's anger was kindled against David, and he said, Why camest thou down hither? and with whom hast thou left those few sheep in the wilderness? . . . And David said, What have I now done? Is there not a cause? ” 1 Sam 17:26, 28a, 29 KJV italics and emphasis mine

Nobody asked David to fight Goliath, not even God; but he made a conscious conscience decision having asked himself a number of CRITICAL questions. The second you raise from your bed in the morning to the time you return to it later at night, you will be presented with hundreds of challenges to fight. But not every battle is yours to fight, pick your battles...there those to fight, others to walkaway and others to ignore.

How do you decide which battle is yours to fight? Here is my contribution to your insight:
1.       What do you|loved ones LOSE if you DO|DON'T fight? – think Kingdom,  Destiny, Call, Assignment
2.       What do you|loved ones GAIN if you DO|DON'T fight? – think Reward, investment, Protection, Provide
3.       Do you have the PEACE of God in you to stand and fight at this time and place?
