Friends pt 1
Friends we all have them and we all love them but so we think. We need to understand through wisdom and knowledge that there is criteria for choosing friends because one of the things you must be critical about in life is who are your friends because your friends can either make or break you.
on part one I’ll discuss what your friends influence or control in your life. because anyone who is difference from his/her friends is a deceiver or a hypocrite.
What your friends influence or Control in your life
- the state of you thoughts, I say state of thoughts because your friends cannot control what you think but control how you think. your friends directly and indirectly give you counsel Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. (Psalms 1:1),
- He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: But a companion of fools shall be destroyed. (Proverbs 13:20)
- your habits, if we all think on when and how we started certain habits we would discover that most of our habits or our prominent habits came by the virtue influence from a friend or friends.what influences your mind influences you.For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; But his heart is not with thee. (Proverbs 23:7),Howbeit from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin, Jehu departed not from after them, to wit, the golden calves that were in Beth-el, and that were in Dan. (2 Kings 10:29)
- your Future, we may not this but it’s reality is undeniable. many people who stole and are in jail started stealing because of their friends,so many made mistakes they regret because of friends and so made turned their life around because of friends. He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: But a companion of fools shall be destroyed. (Proverbs 13:20), Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. (June 1:11)
We all need friends but we don’t need all friends some friends should remain only as Facebook friends, you need to create a benchmark of friendship and everyone who must be you friend must meet the criteria.
