|Pick your battles
I don’t even remember where I first heard this quote, but I try to use it.
Whether with my husband, son or whomever. Pick your battles.
Is the issue you are about to discuss/argue/bring to conversation, worth the time/effort/hurt that may be caused by it?
Have I tried to see it from their point of view? Is it something that really matters in the big scope of things?
Am I mentioning it, simply to make a point?? MY point?
1 Peter 4:8 says, “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.”
Colossians 3:12 reads “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.”
