(So this blog is intended for humor purposes and food for thought)
The Great Debate: What if we choose to argue about things that didn’t matter, like which way the toilet paper should go on the roll. Or like, do we say “on today” or just “today”?
What if we argued about stuff like, which tastes better, eating fried eggs cooked in bacon grease or eating fried eggs cooked in butter?
Sounds silly, but honestly, life is too fragile, temporary and enjoyable to be arguing about stuff that makes you more angry, bitter or fosters a sense of entitlement, breaking your peace and interrupting your joy.
I’ve always heard the phrase, “Choose your battles.” There’s wisdom in this statement and it reminds me of Joshua 24:15 that puts all of us on blast, “choose this day, whom you will serve.” It seems it all comes down to choices, but at the foundation of all of the choices we are privileged to make, is the decision to choose Christ. Once you make that choice, everything else is secondary.
I started this blog with the words, The Great Debate. So I will close this blog with this thought, The Great Debate may not be worth debating. Your peace and your devotion to God are presidential in your life. Avoid the things and situations and yes, even the people that rob you of your peace and loyalty to God. Not every opportunity presented to you for debate is worth the cost. Instead, laugh more, keep a proper perspective and propose the question of which tastes better, eggs fried in bacon grease or eggs fried in butter to the one who wants to debate you. LOL
