Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”
It’s important who you’re spending time with. Evaluate your friendships. Are they making you better, inspiring you, challenging you to go further? Or are they pulling you down, causing you to compromise, bringing out the worst in you? That’s corrupting your character. Spirits are transferable. You’re going to become like the people you hang around. If you’re around jealous people, you’re going to become jealous. If your friends don’t have what you want, if they don’t have a good attitude, if they’re not faithful and trustworthy, you need to make a change. Life is short, and you don’t have time to waste with people who are not adding to your life. Yes, we need to help others come up higher, but you need friends who help you come up higher.
If you will quit spending time with the wrong people, God will bring you the right people and your life will go to a new level. He’ll bring divine connections, people who will come into agreement with you, people who will thrust you forward and help you reach your destiny.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for the important role that friends play in my life. Help me to be bold to evaluate and change who I’m spending time with and make sure that my friends are people of faith who challenge and inspire me. I look forward to the divine connections You have for me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
