We don’t have to fight the fights that we used to.
We have new ones, and they are everywhere.
These fights are different than the fights of our father’s fathers, who fought hunger, attack and elements.
Our fights are more subtle – but equally as dangerous.
We fight silent killers such as laziness, complacency, and temptation.
They win when we lose our vigilance. Their best weapons are disguise, hiding, and trickery.
We’ll talk more about some of these fights this week. There are many.
When you can see them clearly, you might prefer to die at the jaws of a sabre-toothed tiger. That might be a less painful way to go.
