This will not be a very long blog. I have been giving a lot of thought to people that go through friends. The ones that make friends and then lose them. They could lose them for any number of reasons but nonetheless they go through friends rather quickly. Perhaps a person that goes through friends like crazy might be wondering what it is about everyone when. The problem might be the one losing all the friends.
That same principle applies to people that go through jobs like crazy. The ones who always seem to be working for a mean boss. Once again the problem probably isn’t the boss if you are getting a new job every year. The problem might be the one always leaving saying nothing is working out.
Perhaps (okay, I know it does) this trickles over into churches. I have seen it over and over again where someone will come into the church. They will air out all of their grievances about their former church and enter into this honeymoon phase at the new church. I can understand this happening if said person did not switch churches every other year but that is kind of rare. It’s just a matter of time until the pastor or fellow congregant says something and they are gone. Gone with both guns blazing and many bow down to find out why when in fact this is this persons M.O. I literally had a couple come to our church quite a few years back and tell me “after a few years we flake out and go to another church”. Well that is what happened. I have learned in these cases to let it go and move on.
Bottom line if you are a person going through friends, jobs, churches, etc. every few years, I can assure you the friends, jobs, churches are not the problem. You need to check your heart.
