: Associating With People Of Quality Principles And Character
Beloved, always know that your idTOPICeal friend is the person whose character is as good yours or someone with a better character trait that you want to absorb.
SCRIPTURE: Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. Proverbs 27:17.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your ideal friend is the person whose character is as good as yours or someone with a better character trait that you want to absorb.
Relationship is critical to life and destiny fulfilment. In life, your company determines your outcome. That is why wisdom dictates that you relate with people who have principles and character that you either want to sustain or assimilate.
There are people who have solid character and quality principles that you want to assimilate or sustain. There are people who have the kind of desirable character that you don’t have or principles that you lack. It may be the character of discipline or diligence that you admire and would like to acquire. Associate with those kind of people. And you know it takes iron to sharpen iron (Prov. 27:17).
It is also possible you have similar character of discipline and diligence and you want to relate with someone of such character in order to sustain yours. The person can encourage you and you can also encourage the person. That is the kind of person to relate with again because it takes iron to sharpen iron (Prov. 27:17).
Beloved, always know that your ideal friend is the person whose character is as good yours or someone with a better character trait that you want to absorb.
That is why it is a challenge for a decent young lady to become friends with a prostitute. It is a challenge when an honest person becomes a friend to an armed robber. This is because the honest person will soon lose his character of honesty by such association. So, relate wisely.
Remember this: Your real friend is the person who either has the same good character content like you or a person with a better character trait that you want to absorb.
Remember this: Your ideal friend is the person whose character is as good yours or someone with a better character trait that you want to absorb.
- Relate with people of good character.
- Do not relate with someone whose character will influence your character negatively.
PRAYER: O LORD, I ask that You give me ideal friends. I receive the grace to be a person of quality character and also attract people of quality character traits around me, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
