But some worthless fellows said, How can this man save us? And they despised him and brought him no gift. But he held his peace and was as if deaf. (1 Samuel 10:27 AMP)
We concentrate so much effort in trying to prove a point to worthless fellows, and fail to maximise the utility of the valiant ones around us.
Learn to hold your peace and let God, who has brought you this far, also help you lead effectively and fulfil your purpose.
Stop focussing on the wrong side of everything!
Act deaf to detractors!
Get rambunctious about the great things happening around you!
Concentrate on what is right!
