BIBLE IN ONE YEAR
It is clear that many people today cannot live without friends. However, friends can make or destroy a person. It is important thatyou cultivate the habit of having good friends around you; make friends with those who can add values to your life. CharlesGodfem once said- "A great person attracts great people and knows how to hold them together."
Everyone should be careful and very selective when it comes to having or making friends as there is always a negative or positive
influence from friends. Little wonder Proverbs says, "If you work
with wise men you will be wise, but with fools you will be destroyed."
Charles T. Jones said "If you want to fly higher like eagle, you cannot fly with vultures. "Anyone who makes friends with sinnersshall definitely become a sinner and vice versa.
You are encouraged to assess your click of friends and ascertain the nature of influence (positive or negative) they have exerted on you. If your company of friends are unbelievers and sinners, come
out from among them today otherwise destruction awaits you hereand afterlife. Jehovah is available if you consult Him while
choosing your friends.
Evil communication corrupts good manners. Your friends can move you towards your dream or move you away from it.
Oh Lord, give me wisdom to choose my friends wisely and give me the grace to associate wisely.
