Topic:. Choose Wisely

Opening Scripture: Proverbs 12:26

The righteous should choose his friends carefully for the way of the wicked leads them astray”
Naturally goats don’t mingle with lions, the goat does not go about keeping a lion as a friend,(that would be at the detriment of it’s life) so it mingles around it’s territory. Friends, as believers we ought to choose our friends wisely, not everyone can be your friend, you need to set your standards, not everyone is heading your way in life, you can’t afford to mix up with everyone, you must have a selected company. When Jesus was on earth there were so many people following Him yet he choose just 12 from the lot’s to keep as his disciples.
Don’t try to please everyone, you would never succeed doing that, so why live that way when you would never succeed anyway ?. Friends we need to be careful those we keep as friends, as the people we move with can either break us or make us. Do a sincere check on yourself, what has been their contribution to your life spiritually, morally, academically and otherwise, if you can’t pick anything tangible then why are you there?, if you have not been able to make a positive impact on their lives as well, you need to check it.
Friendship is not by force but by choice! you’ve got to be careful so as not move with the wrong company Proverbs 13:20-‘he that walketh with wise men shall be wise but a companion of fools shall be destroyed” . The best friend one can have is Jesus, when you have Him, He would surely guard you through life. Be wise 1corinthians 15:33-‘ be not decieved.Every communication corrupts good manners”. It’s my prayer that you won’t fall prey for the wrong company in Jesus name amen.

Lesson for the day- we need to choose our friends wisely.

Quote for the day-Friendship is not by force but by choice.

Lifeforce prayer: Grant me grace oh Lord to act on the truth. Take deception far away from me.
Oh Lord, reveal the secret of men’s heart to me. Show me the secrets of my enemies and teach me to overcome.
From today, I rise taller than my challenges. I gain the upper hand over my enemies. Father, keep me thirsting for more and you; anything that would constitute a barrier in my upward journey, let it be removed by fire in Jesus’ name. Amen!!
