~Friday for Friends~
"Walk with the wise and become wise,
for a companion of fools suffers harm." Proverbs 13:20 (NIV)
Fellowship and friendship with Christians who share your burning desire to know God better and better is- usually-a great thing. All of you can grow in Christ together and encourage each other.
It's a tough decision, though, if you should or should not be friends with someone who's not a Christian. The question to ask is: Are they pulling you down? Or are you pulling them up?
Is God using you to witness and let them know of his everlasting love or are you slowly sinking farther and farther down? It's tough. It's case-by-case, friendship-by-friendship.
Let's pray God leads us and helps us understand which friendships we should cultivate and which we should drop.
How about you? Do you have friendships you grow in and friendships that make you slip? What can you do about it today?
