Burn a Bridge When You Leave, Smell the Smoke Forever

Burn a Bridge When You Leave, Smell the Smoke Forever

Sunday, May 13, 2018

DRF—It is so easy to be upset and say the wrong thing when you leave a church. The problem with ‘burning bridges’ is that people remember what you said. Even more, you will remember your words for a lifetime. While you may justify those words to yourself, you know that they were wrong.

You will smell the smoke forever. Better is to leave well. Bless those around you. Have kind words. Speak the truth in love. Be gentle. If you were treated poorly, don’t return evil for evil. Bless those who curse you.
