Show me your FRIENDS and I’ll show you your FUTURE.
Proverbs 13:20 (NCV) Spend time with the wise and you will become wise, but the friends of fools will suffer.
Proverbs 12:26 (NIV) The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.
It’s impossible to live the RIGHT life when you have the WRONG friends.
1 Corinthians 15:33 (NIV) Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”
When your roots grow DEEPER, your reach goes FARTHER.
Two things I won’t let my friends do
1) Distract me from God’s PLAN.
Matthew 16:23 (NLT) Jesus turned to Peter and said, “Get away from me, Satan! You are a dangerous trap to me. You are seeing things merely from a human point of view, not from God’s.”
2) Continually TEMPT me to SIN.
Genesis 39:12 (NLT) She came and grabbed him by his cloak, demanding, “Come on, sleep with me!” Joseph tore himself away, but he left his cloak in her hand as he ran from the house.
One thing I won’t stop doing
Loving people with the UNCONDITIONAL love of CHRIST.
John 13:34-35 (NIV) “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
