You Got To Know When To Hold 'Em
Good leaders pick their battles. Others seem to enjoy picking a fight. Yet, not every hill is worth dying on. You can go to battle over an opinion, a preference, or a concern today, but this may have implications for tomorrow. Be sure the battle is worth it. Far too many battles have been rooted in someone’s pride instead of a worthy cause. Consider whether or not this cause is important to Jesus.
- Before going to battle for something, make sure the hill is worth it.
- Remember that good will is not given to a leader in an infinite quantity.
- Persistence and perseverance are great qualities.
- Be upfront genuine and avoid manipulation.
I think that is the one piece of missing advise here - never go into a fight you are unwilling to lose. Think about this for a minute - fights demand there be a winner and a loser. Sometimes leaving things be may be uncomfortable, but at least no one loses.
