Don’t Run!

The real problem in any problem is flight from that problem. A sage said: “Running away from any problem only increases the distance from the solution. The easiest way to escape from the problem is to solve it.” Yet, we tend to run when we face challenges or are in distress or trouble. But running only complicates matters. Often, we cannot outrace our problems because we are the problem! Running also delays the solution, since we’ll have to return to the exact spot and face the same problem from which we’ve been fleeing. Are you tempted to run because of fear (Psalm 55:4-7)? Face your challenges head on and conquer them—with God’s help (1 Samuel 17). Not FRIGHT nor FLIGHT, but FIGHT—in His might.—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
