I wish this world could do without the drama.
It is sad that it seems like in some people’s lives, IT is what makes their world go around instead of LOVE. They thrive on it. They continuously judge themselves against others and that is when jealousy comes in–THEN they start the drama by the evil remarks they spew that has spawned itself from judging and jealousy.
It’s truly sad. If we truly understand what the Bible says about such evilness, we know that judging yourself and others is a sin.
This sad sin is most prevalent, I believe, with middle school girls. That is exactly where my oldest is… In the sea of MS where drama develops itself among the jealous, mean and sad girls who think judging and talking about others will somehow make their lives complete. I try to guide and direct without lecturing or nagging, but most times I wish I could just lock her up until she’s 20 or so.
My only comfort and best defense AND absolute greatest tool to teach my child that drama is not worth the time it wastes in your brain is the Bible. I thank God for filling this book with His truth, His lessons and especially for His support in times like these.
Below are the verses I shared with my child and some of her friends today. I pray they understand it and see its example, hide it in their heart and take comfort from it.
Don’t speak evil against each other, dear brothers and sisters. If you criticize and judge each other, then you are criticizing and judging God’s law. But your job is to obey the law, not to judge whether it applies to you. God alone, who gave the law, is the Judge. He alone has the power to save or to destroy. So what right do you have to judge your neighbor? (James 4:11, 12 NLT)
If only everyone no matter what age could remember this verse –this concept–THIS TRUTH–and do what it says–I might get my “wish” I mentioned at the beginning of this blog.
