Is Removing People From Your Life Self-Care?
the life of jesus
Jesus had different circles of relationships. He was first of all in unity and loving relationship with the other 2 members of the trinity – the Father and the Holy Spirit. He then had his closest 3 friends (Peter, James and John), after that his 12 disciples, then a larger crowd of followers. Those who were the closest to him were those he shared the most important moments of his life with. However, Jesus didn’t just cut out anyone who didn’t fit his moral values. In fact, quite the opposite! Jesus hung out and ate with the tax collectors, the prostitutes, the lame, the sick, the poor and the beggars. Those deemed “unclean” and “unworthy”. Those who were unable to give anything in return. Those who were not able to repay him. Those who were not encouraging and uplifting. The addicted. The alcoholics. The abandoned. The unwanted. The outcasts. The ones who had no great morals. The ones who betrayed him. The ones who hurt him. Those were the ones he chose to LOVE, to BLESS, to EAT WITH, to SERVE, to HEAL, to ENCOURAGE and to DO LIFE WITH.
