A friend on Facebook posted a few quotes from Winston Churchill, including this one: “You will never reach your destination if you stop to throw stones at every dog that barks.” Great quote! Who or what do you not need to respond to today? What anger or madness or insult or distraction coming from another person or situation should you refuse to dignify by attention or conversation? Satan may have dangled some bait before you today or may do so soon. Don’t bite the bait! By the way if you are a leader, choose what you go to the stake over. The book of Nehemiah reminds us not to get distracted from what God is asking us to build at any given moment… don’t fight needless battles…
