Choose Which Hill to Die On

I talk often about choosing which hill to die on. Something you are so passionate about that you will shout it off the rooftops and you will not back down. If we get entangled with less important issues it may distract us from the primary passion that God has given us.

Getting distracted or entangled with the world or even other 'good idea' ministries can knock us off the mission God has us on.

There is a story in the Bible (1 Kings 13) about how a prophet had this one mission. God told him to go in one way and leave another way. He couldn't even eat or drink with people. Anther prophet lied and told him God said it was ok to have dinner with him. The prophet let his guard down and was killed by a lion as a result.

The devil loves to distracts us from the mission God has us on. He even uses prophets to do it. Don't give him permission.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 1 Peter 5:8

No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. 2 Tim 2:4
