Everyone can't sit in the front row.
A friend sent me this and I think it has a lot of value and worth while information.
Everyone Can't Sit in Your Front Row
Life is a Theatre - Invite your audience carefully.
Not everyone is spiritual or emotionally healthy enough to have a
front row seat in our lives. There are some people in your life that
are best loved from a distance. It's amazing what you can accomplish
when you let go, or at least minimize your time with draining,
negative, incompatible, pointless relationships, friendships, and fellowships!
Consider your current relationships.
Pay attention to who lifts and who leans? Who encourages and who
discourages? Who is on a path of growth and who is going down fast?
When you leave certain people, do you feel better or feel worse? Who
always has drama?
The more you seek God and godly things, the more you seek quality; the
more you seek not just the hand of God but the face of God, the more
you seek things honorable; the more you seek growth, peace of mind,
love and truth around you, the easier it will become for you to decide
who gets to sit in the FRONT ROW and who should be moved to the
balcony of your life.
You cannot change the people around you, but you can change the people
you are around! Ask God for wisdom and discernment and use these gifts
to choose the people who sit in the front row of your life.
I believe that I can make a difference,and that you can too.
