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.

Jesus walked away from toxic people, and you should too.
In this six-session video Bible study, bestselling author Gary Thomas draws on Jesus example to show how the best course of action for us to take with some relationships is to walk away . . . or let the other person walk away. In the Gospels, we read that when Jesus spoke a hard truth, sometimes the other person chose to walk away. Other times, the person asked Jesus to leaveand he complied. There were also times when people begged Jesus to stay, but he walked away so he could remain completely focused on the mission God had for him.
Most of us have run across toxic individuals who drain us of our joy and peacepeople who resent the grace we share and will never change. However, as Gary will show in this study, we dont have to pour our time and energy into these people. Instead, we can follow Jesus example to walk away from toxic people and walk toward healthy relationships that will encourage us, strengthen us, and build us up. And as we do, it frees us to focus completely on the purpose that God has established for our lives.
