GOOD FIGHTS

Topic : GOOD FIGHTS

READ: 1 Timothy 6:11-16

...and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

Jude 1:3

Do not fight a foolish fight. The Bible teaches us to fight the good fight. It is a good thing to fight the good fight of faith. To fight means to strive vigorously for something. However, there are many foolish fights a person can get into.

Years ago when I was in school I got into a fight with a bully in my school. Two things happened after the fight. First of all I thought I had won the fight or been equally matched with my opponent. But everyone around laughed at me and said I had been beaten. Secondly, for all my efforts I received a black eye. The entire region around my eye became black and stayed that way for about a week. After this fight, I came to the conclusion that there was no point in fighting such useless fights with useless people and a useless audience who did not appreciate my boxing and fighting skills!

From then on, I decided to fight only good fights that were worth fighting. I would only fight for good causes and I would only fight for things that had a good outcome. This is why today I do not engage in the fight of politics or in the fight for money. I learnt to avoid foolish fights many years ago in school. Today, I have discovered many good causes to fight for.

You can either fight for something good or fight for something foolish. Many people are engaged in foolish fights. The Word of God has shown me many good things that are worth fighting for. These things are worth the struggle and they are worth the effort.

Start your day with a blessing
