Explore Inspirational, Thought Provoking, Comforting & Encouraging Bible Verses, Scriptures, Quotes and Passages about letting go of a relationship, bad relationships, past relationships, love, bad friends, and toxic relationships. What the Bible says about letting go of relationships that do not edify or that do not glorify God, e.g. romantic relationships with toxic people, bad company, & ending relationships with bad friends who influence you negatively, demoralize you and draw you away from God.
I pray and trust that God will continually help us to grow in consistently loving one another very deeply, in encouraging one another, in patience, forgiveness, and kindness, and also to know when to let go and not put ourselves in a position where our values are compromised because of a bad relationship, and consequently, our relationship with God becomes shaky, going in a downward spiral. God forbid!
Letting go of a relationship does not mean you are letting go of love, or that you don’t love someone anymore. Ending a relationship by Letting go doesn’t mean we will (or should) stop caring about a person, and it doesn’t mean we should be unkind, gossip about them, be overcome with anger, bitterness and unforgiveness, or never talk to a person again. This is also not to say that we should not maintain healthy and value building friendships and non romantic relationships with non Christians – Absolutely not. How else would we draw others in our sphere of influence to God? So yes, relationships are great and can bring about a lot of good, but our prayer is that we will always influence others for Christ, not the other way around. May our lives always be a living witness for Christ. May God continually minister His truths to each one of us, so we may know how to wisely deal with each situation we encounter, always seeking God’s Approval, Pleasing God & Putting God First, always Honoring & Glorifying God, and always Trusting God’s Plan for our lives. Amen.
