KEEPING THE RIGHT COMPANY
By DIGC03 November 2020
Love everyone but relate with people who will enhance your life and destiny.
SCRIPTURE: He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed. Proverbs 13:20.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Love everyone but relate with people who will enhance your life and destiny.
In our previous study, we saw that your company determines your destiny. Positive company enhances productive destiny while negative company reduces quality destiny.
Now, what are my counsels on the kind of company you should keep?
- Associate correctly (2 Cor. 6:14).
Ensure that you associate correctly. Whether it is marital association or any other form of association, make up your mind to associate correctly. You cannot be on fire for God and marry a water-brand person. Associate correctly!
- Disconnect from the wrong Influence (2 Cor. 6:15-18).
We have been commanded to love everybody, but never commanded to befriend everybody. Bishop David Abioye once said, ‘Love is a command but relationship is a choice’. Love everyone but relate wisely. Love everyone but relate with people who will enhance your life and destiny.
- Ask God to send the right people into your life on a consistent basis (Mat 7:7).
Tell God to send the right people into your life. This is because a thousand good friends are not enough but one bad friend is too many (paraphrased from a saying of Archbishop Benson A. Idahosa of blessed memory).
Beloved, if you must mind your destiny, you must also mind your company.
Remember this: Love everyone but relate with people who will enhance your life and destiny.
- Disconnect from every wrong influence in your life.
- Ask God to bring the right people your way.
PRAYER: I receive the grace to disconnect from wrong influences. Send the right people into my life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
