Today, I learned that there is an app for breaking up. That’s right. There is an app to help you end a relationship. Click this link if you want to see it in action.
Some of you need to download the app today, and I’m not joking.
See, for the past few weeks, Lafayette Community Church has been covering some really tough decisions at our worship gatherings. We have covered the decision to make God first in your money by returning to him the first portion of your income. We have covered the decision to put God first in your week by honoring his command to sabbath or rest one day each week and to use that time to reconnect with Him and with family. Last week, we covered the decision to put God first in your work by starting every day in a “staff meeting” with God.
But there’s another decision we will be talking about this next week. There’s something else that’s so “hard to do” songs have been sung about it: Breaking Up.
Some relationships are toxic. Consider what the first Psalm says:
Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the LORD, meditating on it day and night… For the LORD watches over the path of the godly, but the path of the wicked leads to destruction. — Psalm 1 NLT
Great blessings come when we keep ourselves clear of bad influences.
So this week, we are going to be talking about doing just that. What does it mean to clear out some bad influences? How can we say good-bye to a relationship when God tells us we need to reach out to people who don’t know Jesus? How do we determine if a relationship is bad enough that it needs to be ended?
We’ll talk about that this week, but if you have some insights go ahead and comment here!
