What Was I Thinking?
Pastor B.J. Knefley

Some times I've had the illusion that people think the same way as I do. What was I thinking? This past week has been one of those weeks that there was more drama going on around me than could be found on TV.

I don't really understand drama or why people seem to live in it all the time, but it's real. Personally I try to avoid it like the plague. If I know it's coming I try to get as far away from it as possible. One person described drama as, "a way of relating to the world in which a person consistently overreacts to or greatly exaggerates the importance of benign events."

One of the reasons that I believe that people resort to drama is because they don't have a life. They don't have a grasp of life having a bigger purpose or plan other than what's going on in the moment. Hence when events happen, they can't see how it might work within the context of a larger picture. Consequently, they view it as being personal and affecting them in every way imaginable. Using it as an opportunity to draw attention to themselves as they crawl up on their high horse and proceed to pull everyone else down to their level.

I've jokingly stated that's its like being around someone with a split personality that one minute can be smiling and docile and then the next become a raging bull. Like the schizophrenic person, they see things that aren't there, interpret situations that never existed, and generally act in a manner that makes the rest of us scratch our heads.

I do believe that there is a cure; it's called "Get a life!” In other words, start to understand that life doesn't revolve around you. You weren't placed on this earth to be the center of it, only a part of it. God already is the center. When you start to see yourself within the scope of eternity, your little drama may not seem all that important.

Think about it.
