Talk to me, Abba.

Refuse to react to jealousy and drama. I have sent you those who will rejoice when you rejoice. Be joyful in their presence. When you lose yourself in the drama others cultivate, you refuse to use your call to bring about the kingdom of God wherever you go. Sometimes it seems easier to go to to the poverty stricken than deal with the petty. You go where I send you. It will be painful. All things that cause death to flesh are painful. Humility comes from submitting yourself to these situations. 
Choose grace.

One who loves a pure heart and who speaks with grace will have the king for a friend.
Proverbs 22:11
