Choose your battles carefully

Choose your battles carefully.

Dan 11:25 And he shall stir up his power and his courage against the king of the south with a great army; and the king of the south shall war in battle with an exceeding great and mighty army; but he shall not stand; for they shall devise devices against him.

A Pit bull decided he would battle a Porcupine in back of his house in Southern California





A vet sedated the dog, and then removed a total of 1,347 quills.

The dog survived, and hopefully learned a valuable lesson.

Ouch. james Dobson made the same statement about raising teenagers- Choose you battles carefully. Stand your ground on big issues.

Oh my! Those pictures are scary!! They gave me goosebumps, really.

I totaly agrree with the choosing your battles part. In my opinion, there are things worth fighting for and there are also things which are simply not worth it at all. :D It's up to us to choose and learn what's worth it and what's not.

CHAPTER 4
1 Whence come wars and whence come fightings among you? come they not
hence, even of your pleasures that war in your members?
2 Ye lust, and
have not: ye kill, and covet, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war; ye have
not, because ye ask not.
3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss,
that ye may spend it in your pleasures.
4 Ye adulteresses, know ye not that
the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore
would be a friend of the world maketh himself an enemy of God.
5 Or think
ye that the scripture speaketh in vain? Doth the spirit which he made to
dwell in us long unto envying?
6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore the
scripture saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace to the humble.
7 Be subject therefore unto God; but resist the devil, and he will flee from
you.
8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your
hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye doubleminded.
9 Be afflicted,
and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your
joy to heaviness.
10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he
shall exalt you.
11 Speak not one against another, brethren. He that speaketh against a
brother, or judgeth his brother, speaketh against the law, and judgeth the
law: but if thou judgest the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.
12 One only is the lawgiver and judge, even he who is able to save and to
destroy: but who art thou that judgest thy neighbor?
13 Come now, ye that
say, To-day or to-morrow we will go into this city, and spend a year
there, and trade, and get gain:
14 whereas ye know not what shall be on the
morrow. What is your life? For ye are a vapor, that appeareth for a little
time, and then vanisheth away.
15 For that ye ought to say, If the Lord
will, we shall both live, and do this or that.
16 But now ye glory in your
vauntings: all such glorying is evil.
17 To him therefore that knoweth to do
good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
