There is a FUL popular adage that says Show me your friend and I will tell you who you are.
This saying is very true. No matter how spiritual you are, 1 Corinthians 15:33 says thatEvil communications corrupt good manners.
There are certain friends who would pull you back and there are others who would help you grow spiritually and in other areas of life. Choose your friends wisely.
Before l became born again, I had friends with whom regularly drank alcoholic wines. Then, I met Christ and my lifestyle changed. When my friends visited, I served them non-alcoholic drinks, and before long, they realized that things were different, and withdrew from me. It was painful to lose my friends then, but I let them go because I didnt want them to drag me back to the world.
Today, God has replaced those friends with a lot of brothers and sisters all over the world. I have made new friends who have helped me in my walk With God.
It is this kind of friends that you should have too friends who will draw you closer to God, challenge you to pursue your dreams, pray with you when you are down and whose positive impact on your life will be evident to all. I must warn you that such friends are not many, but even if it is only one
