“Friends may come and go, but enemies accumulate”.
I want to talk to you about this subject that will have a great impact on your life now and later. I know it may seem bold of me to make this claim even before I tell you these important facts. I know that I only have a few minutes of your time but I’ll hurry on if you just give me a few.
F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Oh no not the television show. I am talking about the ones that are a part of your life. These are the people that have the potential to add value to your life. You must be careful how you choose them because your investment of time and effort is too precious to waste and become unfruitful.
So here it goes: –
1. Friends influence your tomorrow.
You must realize that these are the ones that will be in your future. This is why it is important for you to know where you want to go in life. If you don’t make a decision about your destiny then someone will make it for you. If these are people you will spend time with then you need to at least make sure you want to head down the same road. Whether you realize it or not tomorrow is coming faster than you realize. You don’t want to get caught by surprise.
2. Friends push you closer or take you away.
Do you know what your life’s assignment is? Yes, you came here for a purpose. That is why you need to be in pursuit of discovering it. The more you are aware of this then it will help you in your choice of friends. As you aim to fulfill your purpose you will get joy in connecting with people who will help push you closer to it. Otherwise, if you allow, there will be volunteers that will gladly take you swiftly away in the other direction.
3. Friends increase or decrease you.
As you allow people into your life you will notice signs of increase or decrease. This can be from anything along the lines of knowledge, wisdom, experience, money and the like. Take the time to know yourself. You should be able to discern what is going on with your life and see what changes are taking place. Bear in mind you must be willing to give and take because you have to also add value to others life as well. So don’t be too quick to release others before necessary.
4. Friends help give birth or abort.
After all this time I know you must have a dream inside you that you want to give birth to. This can be a critical stage in life because you must be careful who you share your dream with. Everyone cannot handle what God wants to do in your life. There are some people that appear to be happy for you but are only camouflaging what they really feel inside. Because there has been so much failure in their life they don’t want to see you succeed. That is why some people try to get close to you in order for them to get a good shot at aborting your dream.
Be very careful who you allow in your space.
It would be kind of you to share your thoughts on this matter.
Take care until………and God Bless ya
Are you ready to face eternity? If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour of your life and desire to make that commitment now please repeat the following prayer:
Lord Jesus be merciful to me a sinner. I realize that I have sinned against you and come short of your glory. I confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and I believe in my heart that God has raised him from the dead. I pray for your forgiveness and ask that you save me now and accept me into your kingdom. Give me eternal life today.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
