TOPIC: Associating With People of Value
SCRIPTURE: Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. Proverbs 27:17.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Relate with someone who will assist you to defend your values.
In our previous studies, it was established that your relationship can either make or mar your life and destiny. Where you are in life today is a function of the influences around you. When you hang around negative influences, you cannot go far in life. On the other hand, when you hang around positive influences, your destiny is guaranteed.
Now, one category of people to relate with in order to have a destiny of quality is people who treasure your principles and value your standards in life.
Relate with people who respect your decision not to smoke, drink, or talk against others.
Relate with someone who will respect and protect your decision not to defile the bed during courtship or before marriage. Relate with someone who will assist you to defend your values. Relate with someone who will not be a bad influence in your life.
Relate with someone who will not introduce you to a wrong habit or character. Relate with someone who will not only value you but also respect and protect your values. Relate with someone who will defend the standards you set for your life.
Don’t relate with people who will discourage you when you want to carry out an act of kindness towards others. For example, when you tell someone that you want to send money to your parents and he discourages you from doing it, he is not a person to relate with.
Beloved, don’t relate with people who don’t respect your values or standards in life.
