Your Inner Circle

Verse of the Day:   Proverbs 13:20   

he who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.  

Choose wisely the people with whom you surround yourself, especially, your inner circle.  Whether we like it or not, we are influenced by those closest to us. Simply put, a learned behavior is a skill or action that is developed by watching or being told what to do. If you are regularly surrounded, counseled or given advice by people who don’t know the Lord you will be subjected to the things of the world and when you surround yourself with fools, you’ll be inclined to do foolish things. The people you associate with have an impact on your life, your success and your relationship with God. There is a saying that goes like this, “Tell me with whom you associate with and I will tell you who you are.”  Be determined to surround yourself with those who bring out the best in you, who inspire you and most importantly, who love the Lord.

Don’t Be Fooled

Psalm 14 1.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 14:1

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”

 

Today is April Fools’ day, a day in which people play practical jokes and spread hoaxes.  It’s all about fun and games.  However, the Bible says only a fool would deny the existence of God. Where you will spend eternity is no joking matter.  Matthew 25:46 says: And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life. Don’t be fooled into thinking there is no God, seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near. (Isaiah 55:6)

Proverbs 14:3

Verse of the Day:   Proverbs 14:3

A fool’s mouth lashes out with pride, but the lips of the wise protect them.

 

Arrogance, conceit, smugness, egotism, and vanity are only a few of the ways pride shows itself.    Think before you speak and don’t let your mouth bring you trouble.
