Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.” – 1 Corinthians 15:33 (NIV)
Sometimes, I’ve had some friends who haven’t helped me make good decisions. When I hung out with them, I was always tempted to do some things that weren’t right.
Have you noticed that who you hang out with makes a difference in your life? I’ve found that when I hung out with friends that were excited about Jesus it challenged me to grow in my relationship with Jesus. When I spend a lot of time with friends who didn’t love Jesus, it caused me to be challenged to do and say things that weren’t godly.
So today, take an honest look at your relationships. Do you have some friendships that are pushing you toward bad habits and choices? If so, ask God if you need to step back from those relationships. Choose to spend time pursuing relationships that challenge you to grow in your relationship with God and make good choices.
