Hey Beloved, welcome back!
From my last post, we talked about how you need to plan and prepare (with God’s help) for the year 2019, read it here. 👉2019- New Year, New Journey
But today I will like to talk about how the kind of company you keep can either bring you total success or total ruin on this journey.
Let’s see what the word of God has to say about this: “Become wise by walking with the wise; hang out with fools and watch your life fall to pieces. ” Proverbs 13: 20 (MSG) Wow! That is a big bomb right there!
You see, one of the good things you can do for yourself this year is to choose your association wisely and be discerning about it, because you literally become who you’re surrounded with. No relationship actually leaves you the same! As we read from the scripture above.
The word of God is our standard but if today seems to be the first day you are reading that scripture, I’m sure you must have heard this saying: “show me your friends and I will tell you who you are.” Right?
So without any iota of doubt, you will agree with me now that you are defined by the company you keep. Who you are joined with determines how far or how bad you go, directly or indirectly, it affects the outcome of your life. It’s that simple!
And like I always say, not everyone is going your direction, so it’s OK to select and handpick the very few people that are going the same direction as you.
Seriously, friendship is not by force but by choice, you will actually not be committing any offence if you decide to unfollow or unfriend some people and be friend with or follow people of like passion. The company you keep determines what accompanies you. You know! Wisdom is precious. 👌
The year 2019 is a journey and you will go faster if you are in the right company.
