The Door Darken’er
Who are the people in life that immediately darken your door? I mean Jesus Christ, himself could’ve opened the door for them, and they’d gripe because they had to walk around Him.
We’ve talked before about who’s in your 5. It’s important to surround yourself with positive, affirming, honest people. Culturally, we’re the sum of those closest to us.
So if we walk among those who stir strife and darkness, how do you think that affects you? I believe in this:
“Show me your friends, and I’ll show you your future.”
I experienced this years ago. Unfortunately, I was one of the foolish, and a once great friend said he had to distance himself from me. I was shocked, and angry but mostly embarrassed because I knew he was right.
Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm. ~ Proverbs 13:20
I didn’t know Christ, but lived like the devil. My friend was wise in walking away, but he also showed me that unless I wanted to continue on the path I was stumbling down, I had to change.
Brothers, don’t be anyone’s fool. Choose your friends biblically.
One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:24
