Do You Even Have A Dog In This Fight?
In the movie, Beverly Hills Chihuahua, there is a scene where an innocent Chihuahua ends up in the wrong place at the wrong time. The Chihuahua finds himself in a dog fight with el Diablo (which by the way means “the devil” in Spanish). The chihuahua is forced to face a monumental opponent. He has been placed in a fight where , for him, there are no rewards.
So, today, I ask you, do you have a dog in the fight?
When King David stood before the great giant Goliath, he was well aware of the pending reward.
In the Old Testament story of David and Goliath, King Saul promised a great reward for anyone who would defeat the giant Goliath. King Saul promised 3 rewards (I Samuel 17:25):
1. Riches from the king
2. Marriage to the king’s daughter and
3. Tax exemption for the victor's father's house
Are you fighting a battle and there is no reward? If so, it may be time to call it quits.
Some people are fighting battles and there is no apparent reward.
Some people are fighting battles for other people.
Some people are fighting the wrong opponent.
Examine your situation.
