Choosing Your Battles

2nd Samuel 16:11-12- And David said to Abishai, and to all his servants, Behold, my son, which came forth of my bowels, seeketh my life: how much more now this Benjamite do it? let him alone, and let him curse; for the Lord hath bidden him. It may be that the LORD will look on mine affliction, and that the LORD will requite me good for his cursing this day.

David had taken over as king and a Benjamite thought that he was the unrightful king because he was not of the house of Saul. Therefore this man began to curse him. David's servants wanted to cut his head off but David stopped them. He said my own son is cursing me (which Absalom was currently doing), let this man be. A great lesson can be learned here. We do not always have to answer someone that has a problem with us. We do not always have to challenge or argue with someone who has an issue. Sometimes, we just have to let the matter be and put it in the Lord's hands. See here that David says, maybe the Lord will turn his cursing into something good. Do you know that the Lord has the capability of doing that? He sure does! If we fight every battle that comes our way, we will soon become weary. Choose wisely the ones you fight.
