Amen, Wally! That’s one issue I lean into the Lord over all the time, because I genuinely don’t know. He is faithful in showing me the way and full surprises, sometimes. What I think is important is not always what God thinks is important and sometimes, the little things that I am prepared to overlook, he considers vitally important.

That’s the truest thing ever, IB. It takes reflection for sure. Normally going with my own inclination turns out to be a poor idea. Funny what you said, sometimes it seems what we are guided to tussle about seems not so important to us. Great point there.

Love this thought. Too often we assume it’s either one or the other, become all about passivity or about warfare/persistence, and never ask God. He’ll tell us what’s going on.

Nice Brandon. It’s not always the same, for even the same situation, or even the same person is it? Thanks so much for reading and commenting.

Amen, Wally. This is a timely word. I JUST read an article by a writing professional about knowing appropriate behavior, which this individual interpreted to include not saying controversial political things because you might alienate some of your readership. Well, that’s a risk, I admit, but I don’t think that’s the deciding factor whether we should speak or not speak. God is in control and we need to let Him take care of who does or doesn’t read what we write (which works for bloggers as much as it does for novelists! 😉 You’re Thought helps clarify this. Thanks.

Thanks Becky. And that is really the place I had gotten to when I had the thought. Remember, these usually come from some lesson I have had to learn, often uncomfortably!

I always like in 2 Timothy 2:23 where it warns us against being involved in stupid and foolish arguments… it takes discipline and discernment especially in times like this to know when to just speak your peace and move on. Thanks for posting!

You are most welcome. Yes, it takes much of both of those things to know when to dive in and when to back off. Thanks for reading and commenting

Yep a lot of wisdom needed for deciding!
