Too Pretty to be Petty

Everything does not deserve a response. Some things are just beneath you because of who you are.

Scripture Reference:

Do not answer a fool according to his folly, Lest you also be like him (Proverbs 26:4).

It ought to make you cringe and your skin crawl when watching any woman or group of women saved or not acting ratchet or rather "unbecoming" especially in public. It's devastating to watch a group of women act ignorant.  You can see plenty of these videos go viral on social media.   Ignorance and foolishness is not cute when you know how to wipe your own behind.  Arguing, the determination to have the last word, clapping back be physical or verbal...these trivial pursuits are exhausting. In doing so you are no better than the fool. You are too pretty, to be petty playing in that dirt.

As a daughter of God, no engagement of these is NOT a mark on your character as being weak. It displays your strength and glory. Your time, energy and peace are a commodity.  Tact, the right version of it, takes an unprecedented amount of strength.

A wise woman once told me, “Pick and choose your battles wisely, everything isn’t your fight.”

I would add this; you know your words are fire and will cut through to the white meat, but my dear Queen refrain from taking off your crown and getting off your throne for foolishness. It’s not a worthy cause.

We cannot forget we have an enemy.  Satan's motive is to steal, kill, and destroy.  He would love for you to act out of character and away from the mind of God.  Don't give him the satisfaction.
