Bible verses about drama
Christians should never deal with drama especially having drama in the church. There are many ways drama can start such as gossip, slander, and hate which are not a part of Christianity. God hates fighting between Christians, but true Christians are usually not in drama.
Many fake Christians who put on a Christian name tag are the ones who deal with drama inside the church and make Christianity look bad. Stay away from drama and conflict.
Don’t listen to gossip. If someone insults you repay them with prayer. Don’t argue with friends and create drama, but instead kindly and gently talk to each other.
- “Drama doesn’t just walk into your life out of nowhere, you either create it, invite it, or associate with people that bring it.”
- “Some people create their own storms then get mad when it rains.”
- “Don’t waste time on what’s not important. Don’t get sucked into the drama. Get on with it: don’t dwell on the past. Be a big person; be generous of spirit; be the person you’d admire.” Allegra Huston
