When to Walk Away, Study Guide
Add To Cart
When to Walk Away is a 6-session video Bible study by Gary Thomas where he draws from Jesus' example to show that sometimes the best course of action in dealing with 'toxic' people is to just walk away. In the Gospels, you will find that sometimes Jesus walked away from unreasonable people and at other times, people walked away from him. He never ran after them trying to change their minds.
Most of us have toxic individuals in our lives who drain us of our joy and peace. In this study, you'll learn that you don't have to spend your energy on these people. Instead, you can walk toward healthy relationships that will encourage you and focus on the purpose that God has established for your life.

In this six-session video Bible study (DVD/streaming video not included), bestselling author Gary Thomas draws on Jesus' example to teach us how to handle difficult relationshipsand to help us discern when we should walk away.
As Christians, we may feel that imitating Christ's love means we must always meet the needs of unhealthy people in our lives and endure poisonous relationships. Many of us have dealt with toxic individuals who drain us of our joy and peacewho never seem to change no matter how long we wait or how hard we pray. It's a hard truth, but sometimes the best course is to distance ourselves from certain relationships and dedicate our energy elsewhere.
Drawing from years of pastoral experience, Gary Thomas looks at biblical examples from the lives of Jesus, Paul, and Nehemiah to give you insightful, biblical wisdom that you can apply right away to the relationships around you. You'll discover how to:
- Learn the difference between difficult people and toxic people.
- Find refuge in God when you feel under attack.
- Discern when "enough is enough" and when to "wait it out."
- Keep a tender heart even in unhealthy relationships.
- Strengthen your defense and set healthy boundaries.
- Grow your inner strength and invest in reliable people.
We can't let others steal our joy or our mission. It's time to follow Jesus' example to walk away from toxic people and walk toward healthy relationships. And as we do, it frees us to focus completely on the purpose that God has established for our lives.
