Agnes: Grace, I can’t wait for God again, I think I’ll accept James’ proposal. Time is not on my side at all. I turned 30 last week and I’m still single. When my mates have been getting married since their early twenties.
Grace: I’ve been telling you to accept his proposal since, you’ve been dulling yourself. This guy is really serious about you.
Agnes: I know, but I’m not convenient with some things that he does.
Grace: Nobody is perfect, you that you’re talking are you perfect? If you want to wait to find Mr perfect before saying yes, you’ll wait long ooo, just take the available and change him to Mr Perfect.
This was a conversation between Agnes and her friend, let’s see one lesson we can glean from it this morning.
Friends are powerful
A common saying says “show me your friend and I will tell you who you are” even scripture says
“Don’t fool yourselves. Bad friends will destroy you.” (1 Corinthians 15:33, CEV)
That’s really deep. Gods word tells us that bad friends will destroy us.
They might not necessarily be evil people, they might even want the best for us.
But it’s not their intentions that count in this case, but the way they influence you.
How will Bad friends destroy you?
It’s by giving you wrong advice. They influence your decision making so you choose wrong.
You definitely don’t want to surround yourself with friends who encourage you to have jeru trap before marriage so you can see if the man is fertile, or if you’re compatible when you know God’s stance on premarital jeru trap.
Before you know it you’ll give in to their influence.
Beware of friends that always give advise that contradicts God’s word.
Disconnect from such, they should not be in your circle of close friends.
Surround yourself with the right friends, with people who will be a source of encouragement for you, especially when you’re experiencing down times.
Surround yourself with people that will encourage, not to get you into compromise
Surround yourself with people that will encourage you to build your relationship with God.
Surround yourself with people that will encourage you to be the best in God’s way.
I pray God grants us more understanding in Jesus name
