BTG Follow Up - Day 6 - Choosing Friends Wisely

The friends you choose are SO VERY IMPORTANT!!!

God intended human friendships to draw us closer to Him.

Who you choose as your friends impacts who you become, how God can work in your life, and as a result, what He can do with your life!

It is critical that you choose friends carefully!

You want friends that will encourage you in making Jesus your best friend!

Evaluate your friendships and ask yourself important questions to see if they are relationships you should have.
~ Who are my closest friends?
~ Are they who I would like to become like and who would please Jesus?
~ Do they encourage me in what is right?
~ Is this friendship pushing me closer to the Lord, or drawing me further from Him?
Look at the answers to those questions! If a friendship is not encouraging you in the Lord, it is not the kind you want to keep.

Ask the Lord to help you choose the right kinds of friends - He will!

Remember, it only takes ONE friend to either destroy your life, or to lead you to the Lord and what is right!

"Iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens another." Proverbs 27:17
"Do not be deceived: "Bad company corrupts good morals." 1 Cor. 15:33

We want friends that will help you grow in your #1 relationship - your walk with the Lord!
