3. Flying With Eagles
Verse Of The Day: May 3
Proverbs 13:20 NLT
“Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in trouble.”
I grew up hearing the statement "if you want to fly like an eagle, you can't hang around the turkeys!"
It didn't take long to figure out what it meant. If I hang around bad types of people, that will rub off on me and influence me to make bad life choices. If I want my life to be good, I need to hang around good people.
The challenge will always be figuring out how to say no to people who have been your friends, no matter how bad they are. But your life will never make a positive change if you can't learn to say no. This is why having friendship with God is the most important friendship you can have.
What friends do I need to be careful of because they influence me the wrong way?
Lord Jesus, You will always be the best friend anyone can have. Help me to trust You and follow You everyday. Help me to love all my friends, but also to say no if they are leading me the wrong way.
