It doesn’t have to be a day every day, some days you can avoid them.

It doesn’t have to be a day every day, some days you can avoid them.

Acts 20:3 “… where he stayed three months. Because some Jews had plotted against him just as he was about to sail for Syria, he decided to go back through Macedonia.”

At the last minute…

He was just about to get on board the ship to sail for Syria, probably to visit his sending Church at Antioch …

It was the longer journey by sea but one he was ready for …

The he heard of a plot to attack him on the ship or when he landed in Syria…

At the last minute he changed his plans.

It’s okay to change your plans.

You don’t have to carry through with things. Especially if you are going to walk straight into an enemy plan. Why walk into the enemies trap when you know they are trying to attack you.

One of the wisdoms of leadership is knowing when it is right to go and listen to the complaint and the criticism and to take it on the chin and when to say NO I will not walk into that arena, I will not give the people the satisfaction of attack.

You are the steward of your life under God. I am not an advocate of voluntary martyrdom. I like to live. I like to avoid bad days.
