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.

Choosing Friends

Proverbs 12 26 2

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 12:26

The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.

Choosing the right kind of friends is actually a big deal because whether you realize it or not, you become like the people you spend the most time with. Surround yourself with people who encourage you and make a positive impact in your life.  Your friends should inspire and motivate you to do good and be a better person. Take a look at who you spend the most time with and ask yourself if they are the type of people God would want you to be around. Are they equally yoked? Do they have the same values? Do they make your relationship with God stronger? Choose your friends wisely and strive to be a good friend too.

Sin in Your Heart

Psalm 66 18.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 66:18

If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened; but God has surely listened and has heard my voice in prayer.

 

We all fall short of the glory of God.  We are not perfect but what we do when we fail God makes all the difference. Put aside your pride and acknowledge your sin and turn from it. Don’t let sin come between you and God. Don’t let sin destroy your fellowship with Him. Humble yourself before the Lord and confess your sins, ask for forgiveness, and he will hear your prayers.
