So Much Drama

If you hadn't noticed it, our culture is one that's filled with drama. And not only that, but people seem to be consumed with it. They can't get enough of it. Whether in politics, sports, news, relationships, schools or the workplace, drama seems to dominate. All you have to do is watch the millions of tweets and Facebook posts that deal with this. It's like people can't get enough of it. Lately I've been thinking about all the drama that goes on around us. Am I going to be consumed with it? Am I going to be on the edge of my seat waiting for the next thing that happens around the world? I don't think so. I think it's beneficial to be knowledgeable about things, but not to let them dominate your thought life and time.  To me there are too many things that are way important than simply drama. In days where my time is precious, I'm going to focus on those things that I should, and drama isn't one of them. I think Jesus words in Matthew 22:37-40 are what I'm going to focus on, "Jesus answered: Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind. This is the first and most important commandment. The second most important commandment is like this one. And it is, “Love others as much as you love yourself.” All the Law of Moses and the Books of the Prophets[a] are based on these two commandments." Are you going to allow the drama all around you to dominate you life? Or are you going to focus on loving God and loving people? I know what I'm going to do :)
