Get off the drama bus

DRAMA: An exaggerated amount of emotion or excitement in relationship to the events to which it pertains.

I wonder what might happen if we made a conscious decision, everyday, to get off the drama bus?

If we refused to talk in exaggerated terms about things that aren’t worth talking about?

Silly things, like red cups.

Like the “war on Christmas.”

The latest gossip about celebrities.

The way our favorite political candidate is going to save the world.

The snarky comment our Facebook friend made about his ex-spouse.

What if we got off the drama bus and instead chose to talk about:

  • How to make the 5 mile radius around our home a better place to live.
  • What we can do to love our co-workers and fellow church attenders in more tangible ways.
  • Why our business and hobbies seem more important to us than our spouses and children.
  • Ways we can make someone else smile or have a better day.
  • How we will look at the way we’ve spent this year, 5 years from now.
  • The kind of legacy we want to leave behind when we die.

What might happen?

Do you think we’d become better people?

Would we live each day a bit more intentionally?

Would the people around us enjoy being around us?

What would happen if you chose to get off the drama bus?

  2. If we live for Christ in an unashamed manner we’ll have the unavoidable brand of drama in our lives. However the “immature drama” is definitely to be avoided if we’re to live mature, effective, Christ-centered lives.
    Following the Spirit’s leadership we will be drawn to causes and discussions that are eternity focused instead of transient & trivial.
    The end result will be A. life changing
    B. Positive effect on society influencing
    C. More souls brought into Christ’s Kingdom
