The First Cut is the Deepest

I am always sad to hear when people I know have cut people out of their lives.

I know people who "unfriend" people over such petty things and will never speak to them again. I know people that no longer have relationships with family members over simple arguments or disagreements.

We have all done it. I've done it. It was childish, it was stupid. Luckily I have since made ammends (or at least I put an olive branch out there).

In my opinion people do it way to often. I really think we should think long and hard before going to such an extreme with our family or friends. I've learned that there are only a couple of reasons that you should cut someone out of your life. For instance, if that person is abusing you in any way. 

I am glad that God has never decided to cut me out because I have hurt him so much or becuase I have disagreed with him or not listened to the things he was telling me.

God puts people into our lives for a reason. I encourage you to make peace with the people that you have cut out of your lives. I've learned that it is tougher to live life with regret than to eat a little humble pie.
