Jesus' call on our life is so important that to be true to his mission means guarding our time, souls and energy from "toxic people" who will never change and who will drain us and destroy us. It isn't based on psychological health as much as it is on guarding our spiritual mission and purpose. If Satan can soak up your ability to care and love by distracting you with toxic people who will never change, he can cleverly use make you less effective and have less of an impact. This book will look at how the Bible focuses our lives into a mission, and how Jesus taught about and dealt with the toxic people in His life-giving us practical guidelines about how we can do the same in the midst of our life and calling.
