Pick The Hill You’re Gonna Die On
Pick the hill you’re gonna die on. – Exodus 14:14
Many of us still hear her voice in our heads when we are about to cross a boundary, get out of our lane, or maybe just get involved when the timing isn’t quite right. It’s the Serenity Prayer for a Southern Magnolia who has jumped in one too many times with the best of intentions only to be criticized, misunderstood, or disrespected. So, “pick the hill…” was Marie’s way of sharing her personal experience and warning us that we can’t fix every problem or right every wrong–but God knows she usually tried! And sometimes, many times, it worked, and then it was magic, and it WAS a hill worth dying on! And she went there for us because she believed we were worth it and so did Jesus.
