From time to time there is always some individuals believes that because you love on them and are generous to them… that you might be stupid too…Serving others doesn’t mean you are their personal “welcome” mat.
In this life… you will find people who will try to use you up…and suck the very life out of you!
There are takers… In all honestly some have this narcissistic belief system as if it is your job to help service them!
“FORGIVENESS DOESN’T MEAN THAT YOU OPEN YOUR DOORS TO DUMBNESS”
God knows that I have helped a lot of people in my life… The truth is the return with people are “never” great but my benefits with God are superb.
People see the favor of God on your life and they see opportunity… So they prefer either to get with the program or try to see what avenues they can crawl from so that they abuse, manipulate or connive “your program” in some way!
Sadly, I believe what makes a sorry individual is that HE OR SHE can’t say Thank you, Please, Forgive me or I love you”… or one who is can’t discern that you know they are taking advantage of you!
People get caught up in what they might appear to others so they bypass on good hospitality and Godly manners! Get what they want and trying to make a fool out of you.
I don’t waste anytime on toxic people…Although God might call me to help you but he doesn’t want you to make a fool of out of me… Whatever the requirements man has…God is never about chaos even if it is organized!
Growing up, I remember when I was told different things that weren’t necessarily words from the bible… just traditional cliché’s. When it came to learning forgiveness God was very specific about your heart for forgiving people who hurt or abuse you Yet, I never read that he said open your heart up to them and become their doormat!
A terrible disservice to many who believe forgiving someone means we sit at the table together…Wrong! God tells us simply that he send us among wolves ” Be wise as serpents and gentle as doves” ( Matthew 10:16).
I think where many people do a job on people is telling them what they think instead of what God really shared when your enemies are in your presence… He let it be known that he will handle them…Not you do the handling… I have never read where God said “open” your doors to evil… He said ” Abstain from all appearance of evil”… and that might be a family member.
Realistically people twist the truth to stay within their “own” dysfunctions… it makes them feel good for being made a fool out of. I learned quickly that people have different sets of rules for people that they like and they know have either wicked or questionable behaviors… And in the same breath will tell someone else something totally different!
The sly, slick and the wicked… will ride your back and come down your face…And giving them more space to be in your space is not a very wise thing to do. If you feel like you can handle it…Go for it!
I don’t welcome everything and everyone at my table… Forgiveness is one thing but a blatant fool is another! Some people you better keep out of your life and definitely from sitting under your table…
THINK ABOUT THIS
“THE HARSH REALITY ABOUT THE MIND OF A FOOLISH INDIVIDUAL IS THIS… SATAN IS AWARE THAT HE IS GETTING FED WHETHER THE HANDLE OF THE SPOON IF LONG OR SHORT.
SATAN ALSO REALIZES THAT THE FOOL DOESN’T KNOW HE OR SHE “ISN’T
THAT PARTICULAR ABOUT WHAT MAKES ONES SELF “STARVE”… ONLY THAT HE HAS FED THE DEVIL INSTEAD FEEDING WISDOM TO HIMSELF”
