Christ-Believing Relatives: Cowards When it Comes to Crazy Folks

Some of us invite drama in our lives.  We just can't help it.  Something in us just welcomes the familiar spirits of gossip, backbiting, yelling, cursing, craziness and whatever else we grew up around.  Those of you who know the Bible, know we aren't supposed to entertain nor fellowship with those familiar spirits.  But some believers, don't care.

Why do we allow people who wear certain titles in our lives get the best of us?  Just think, you are having a good day until that relative calls you on the phone with their drama.  You get off the phone and now you feel like you don't want to do anything.  You are hollering at the kids for no good reason.  Your mind starts taking you back to negative times.  "Oh I remember when she...and that's why I can't stand...and you know what why did I even bother to..."  Now you are frustrated and irritated all because of one of your relative's seeds of negativity.

Now I know what some of you are thinking, "I don't allow it...I am not the one causing problems."  Maybe that's true.  But if we interviewed some of your relatives, what would they say?  Sometimes we start drama by what we don't say and what we don't do.  You could have told your backbiting trouble-making relative to keep quiet on a certain issue, but instead you just laughed or sat silently on the phone.  You allowed them to keep feeding you and others their crazy stories by saying nothing!  No wonder why some relatives just keep on behaving like they do, people just laugh and feed into whatever they are saying.  Wonder what God thinks?

Where are the bold relatives out there?  The ones who don't tolerate no mess!  Do you stand up for what's right?  Do you put fools in their place?  Do you cut people off irregardless of their titles when they have seriously wronged you and yours?

I hate to say it, but some so-called Christ filled believers are cowards!  They are always fearful to hurt someone's feelings who they know is in the wrong!  They don't want to be accused of being a trouble-maker for putting their foot down.  Some have fought so many battles over the years about right and wrong actions that they are just tired.  But if these relatives are truly the saved, sanctified and Holy Spirit, bible toting Christ followers, then where is the strength and courage they are supposed to use to help others?

You have to question who are these folks really serving?
