Domestic Abuse Awareness – #17

“Jesus walked away or let others walk away for a variety of reasons.” Gary Thomas outlines these in his new book, When to Walk Away. He warns that toxicity (what you should walk away from) is not synonymous with difficult people or circumstances. Jesus came to “to seek and to save the lost” (Luke 19:10), and the lost are difficult people in difficult circumstances by definition. Toxic people are difficult, but in a soul-killing, relationship-destroying way. Toxic people excel in at least one of three things: “a murderous spirit, a controlling nature, and a heart that loves hate.”

Those are the people Jesus walked away from, and you should too.
