Bad Influences

Verse of the Day: Proverbs 22:24-25

Do not make friends with a hot-tempered person, do not associate with one easily angered, or you may learn their ways and get yourself ensnared.       

It’s clear that our friendships can have an influence on us, either for good or bad. It’s important to choose the people who are close to us wisely. Choose godly friends that will be a positive influence in your life instead of people who can’t control their anger with whom you may eventually find yourself in a bad situation.  A bad temper is contagious.

Dear Lord, grant me wisdom to choose my friends wisely. Help me to make good decisions when it comes to the people I allow to be close to me. Protect me from people who are bad influences, who stir up conflict and are easily angered. Keep me from all harm, evil and the plans of the enemy. In Jesus Mighty Name I pray, Amen.
