Topic: The Wrong Company-Keep Off [11/11/2019]
Nothing destroys a life like the wrong company. Friendship is not by force; friendship is by choice.
SCRIPTURE: Iron sharpener iron; so a man sharpener the countenance of his friend. Proverbs 27:17
Thought for the day: Nothing destroys a life like the wrong company. Friendship is not by force; friendship is by choice.
A wrong company is the company that has the potential to corrupt or destroy a person’s life and prevent him or her from fulfilling his Divine mandate on earth. Nothing destroys a life like the wrong company. Sometimes, the wrong company or association could be more destructive than sickness. This is why you must keep off the wrong company at all cost.
The truth is, your company affects your destiny. If you are an eagle, company with eagles; avoid the company of vultures because vultures eat corruption but eagles do not taste corruption. In the same vein, if you are a lion, do not company with hyenas because hyenas eat rotten meat but lions do not eat anything that is rotten.
Beloved, you cannot say you are a born again Christian and all your friends are drunkards, womanizers, criminals, prostitutes or liars! It means that your Christianity has a question mark (?).
Have this in mind: Never company just for socialization but company for positive impersonation. Do not make friendship just for fun, make friendship for fire. mingle with those who can fuel your spiritual fire and inflame your enthusiasm and momentum.
Do not let anyone force you into a relationship that you are not sure of or comfortable with. Friendship is not by force, friendship is by choice. There are some friends you may need to disconnect from if you must reach your future and fulfill your destiny. Anybody who is not going your direction does not deserve your association. Love is a command but friendship is a choice. That is why you are to love liberally but relate selectively.
You shall not miss it, in Jesus’ Name
Always Remember This: Nothing destroys a life like the wrong company. Friendship is not by force; friendship is by choice.
Disconnect from any person or group of persons whose influence makes you compromise your integrity with God.
Make it a daily prayer schedule for God to bring the right people into your life.
