Know when to fold em.....

Acts 19:8,9 says..."Paul entered the synagogue and spoke boldly there for three months, arguing persuasively about the kingdom of God. 9But some of them became obstinate; they refused to believe and publicly maligned the Way. So Paul left them."

I like the fact that Paul was bold about what he believed. I also admire that he was persistent in doing things that would spread the Word. Here scripture says that he spoke bodly, even argued for the sake of Christ. It also says that he did not get through and that eventually, Paul left them.

How much time are we spending today arguing with people about our faith? Some hearts are going to receive the good news and others are never going to get it. We must realize that it's not our responsibility to make them's Gods. As Kenny Rogers sang, "you got to know when to hold em, know when to fold em: know when to walk away, and know when to run." Choose your words carefully. Spend your time wisely. God will do the rest!
