There are two sides to every story.
Just like there is a head and a tail on every side of a coin.
Who’s keeping scores?
Everyone wants to win no-one wants to lost.
Voices are raised as egos are bruised.
We’re caught up in the heat of the moment.
We don’t care if our words bite.
We’re caught up in the hostility and the fight.
The fight to be heard, the fight to be known, the fight to be understood.
Take a deep breath and pause for a second before you send that text.
Ask yourself, what am I really trying to achieve here?
Why must I win and you lose?
Ask yourself, what point am I trying to prove?
Good soldiers know when to strike and when to take cover.
They know when they must rest and recover.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Ephesians 6:12)
If you always focus on winning the battle, you may just lose the war.
