What’s up Butterflies?
I was just sitting here and thinking to myself, some of us sit in front of the television and watch Storm Chasers chase after tornadoes and fly in the eye of hurricanes and we think to ourselves, they must be crazy. But, in life drama is as dangerous as a storm and some of us chase it every day.
You all know the saying, “Don’t start no drama and it won’t be no drama.” Well, it is evident that not everyone has gotten that memo because there is drama everywhere. Drama in the church. Drama in the office. Drama in the home. Heck, there’s even drama on social media.
It takes two elements to set the drama scene: A running mouth of other people’s business; and a listening ear to gossip. I know, I get it because there are some things that go down in our lives as well as in the lives of others that just make us want to run and tell it. But, that doesn’t make it right.
When jumping in other people’s business, half the time we are making assumptions about the situation and we all know that assumptions make a fool out of the one who is assuming. The other half of the time, we are listening to what others say they heard someone else say. Do you see how crazy that is? The rules are simple, yet many of us make it complicated. If we have nothing good to say, then we need keep it moving. Think about it, when you are dealing with drama in your life you want compassion and prayer, not more drama.
So, how do we fix this? If we are not there to make the situation better for others then we need to stay out of it. Also, we need to avoid the drama queens. Those are the ones who do nothing but look for drama and when they can’t find it, they create it. They are the first ones to deliver bad news and the last ones to share the good news. We all have enough to deal with in our own lives and to be caught up in others people’s business makes no sense.
Since we all can use help in this area, join me in asking the Lord to help us to be a better person and stay drama free. It will free us to live a happier and more productive life.
