I was enjoying a Christmas movie when the phone rang. I could tell by the sound of his voice that David was not happy.
Deuteronomy 2:5, “…restrain yourselves. Don’t try and start a fight.” The Message
I swear I could hear David’s blood pressure going up. Our credit card number was stolen for the second time this year. I blamed his Hotmail account.
Deuteronomy 2:9, “…don’t try to pick a fight…” The Message
He ended the call and gave me the details. I suggested changing email addresses. He didn’t want to deal with it that late in the evening.
Deuteronomy 2:19, “…don’t try and pick a fight with them…” The Message
I dropped it. God told me 3 times not to pick a fight.
“…As the weeks passed, I started seeing this journey with my friend as “chalk-line faith.” It was like God had drawn a chalk line around my feet. Everything within that chalk line was something I could do. I could pray. I could be present. I could love her.
Everything outside of that chalk line was either my friend’s assignment or God’s. …” “Chalk-Line Faith” Suzie Eller, Proverbs 31 Ministries
