Overcoming The Bully


In this episode, I give a personal testimony about bullying. I also discuss how Satan is the bully and how God’s Word applies to bullying. What do we do when facing Goliath doesn’t work out the way it did for David? Facing our giants may look a little more like David dealing with Saul. It might be a little more like Joseph being left for dead by his brothers and not being able to confront them until decades later. Dive in deeper with me.

“Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord. Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself. That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have died. But if we judged ourselves truly, we would not be judged. But when we are judged by the Lord, we are disciplined so that we may not be condemned along with the world.”
