One of the greatest stories in the Bible is David and Goliath. David, a small boy, conquered the mighty Philistine warrior, Goliath.

And yet in 1 Chronicles 20, years later, David is still at war with the Philistines. It sounds like a recurring issue that won’t go away. I wonder if David ever looked in the mirror and thought, is it me?!

David continued to fight the Philistines because they were against his God and his people, and that was worth continuing the fight. There are some issues that continue to raise their ugly heads in your life too. You need to decide if they are worth fighting for.

It’s good to look in the mirror to see if there’s anything you are doing to exacerbate it, but it’s a good chance to reassess your values too. What is important to you? Is the issue challenging those values? Constantly fighting something can be a drain, but if you consider it important then it can drive you on to greater things.
