Choose Friends Wisely

One of the most important things that we need to take notice of is who we choose to be our friends. Friends can influence us a lot. There are good and bad friends. Some help you do right, while some tell you to do wrong. If you choose a bad friend they may tell you to do stuff such as stealing, lying, bullying, while if you choose good friends, they will encourage you to do right, and tell you not to do wrong.

Here are two Scriptures; Young people who obey the law are wise; those with wild friends bring shame to their parents. Proverbs 28:7. The godly give good advice to their friends; the wicked lead them astray. Proverbs 12:26 In these verses, we see how we can know when our friends are good or bad, and, how they affect us. Good friends give good advice, while bad friends bring you to shame, and lead you off the straight and narrow path to Heaven. If you’ve read Pilgrim’s Progress, you’ll have seen that Christian had many friends on his way to Heaven. He had friends who were godly, like Hopeful, and friends who were not godly, like Wordly Wiseman. Pilgrim’s Progress is a book that explains the Christian condition. Christian is all of us who are following Christ, while like him, we meet many friends some who look wise and good, though the only wisdom they really have is worldly wisdom. Others are Godly and have Godly wisdom. Be careful which type of friends you have. Choose your friends wisely, so you will be a honour to your family.
