It is very important to choose whom you called a friend. Choose a friend who are dependable and honest, proud to know, people you admire, who show you love and respect and people who reciprocate kindness It is not a bad thing to bid farewell to those who are not called upon or people that has gone far with you. They were there in your life for a purpose, and that is both natural and fine.
By chosen whom we take on as friends we are chatting towards our own destiny. An adage that says “a man is known by the company he keeps”, it is important for our well being to be a great friend to someone and to have a group of friends supporting you in everything you are to do. The way you can tell the signs of a good friend is by looking at the actions they take, how they care for others.
Wrong associations hinder our walk with our best friends. An individual who don’t want to change, grow or move to a new level, also needs to understand that our Christian walk is a journey. But remember that certain are people are called into your life for reason, they inspire you in their season. But whenever that season is passed, the relationship is not what it was. So the best friend you should have as a person is Jesus Christ and do not lock up yourself to a friend with the inducement that he is your best friend.
An important part of having good and successful friendships is to know that you can rely on them to be there for you and support you.
Research found that friends often bond by providing one another with moral support to resist any temptation. Researchers discovered that when it came to resisting temptation, sometimes friends were likely to become partners in crime as they decided to indulge together. Good friend helps bring out the best in you without expecting perfection, Friends encourage each other. Relationships are like nutrition for your soul. Do the people that are closest to you make you to be healthy? You are influenced directly by the people you spend most of your time with. Even if you feel like you are far different from them right now, in five years you won’t be.
So, whenever you want to choose friends ask for Gods wisdom to guide you. Christian friends will help you and bring wisdom, bad ones will always lead you to sin. Being loving and forgiving Christian doesn’t mean that you are to move with bad friends who are bad influence to you who bring peer pressure in your life.
As an individual, you have to know when friendship with another person is leading you away from the lord. It was said in Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 that two people are better than one because together they have a good reward for their hard work. If one falls, the other can help his friend get up. But the tragic it is for the one who is all alone when he falls. There is no one to help him get up.
The lord placed us in the midst of many people. We are all surrounded by people, both strangers, people we don’t know that cross our paths on a regular basis. There are also people around us who bring great joy to us, and some who may bring pain. That is what is called the nature of relationships. There is no interaction or relationship with another person that is outside gods reach. We may wonder about and question many relationships that we found ourselves in, but in them all god is at work, because he has said he will never leave us nor forsake us.
In every relationship, your interaction with another person, whether good or bad, positive or negative, god is always with you, he is for you, he will use it for our sanctification, for our growth to make us more like Jesus Christ
