Are Your Friends Good For You? — 8 Comments

  1. <3 Sheryl, thank you for your important message for today as you point our hearts to ponder how and why we should be careful in choosing our friends. Spending time in bad company, no matter what quantified reasons we have decided to spend time with that kind of people, is rarely a good choice. They can cause us to devalue our own morals and ethics in small ways that may eventually change our thought process. Sometimes we choose such people hoping that we can encourage them to become better through exposing them to our good values. May we be very cautious if we are using that premise as a guideline. I echo your words: “By spending time with people you admire, you’ll form solid, healthy friendships with people you’d be proud to emulate—and pleased to have your children emulate” and consider them to be excellent advice. <3 I am both honored and blessed to share your message on my Timeline. <3

    • And I especially want to thank you for sharing my devotion on your Facebook page, Joyce. Your sharing this post from my Today Can Be Different blog enabled me to post my devotion on FB. (For some reason, I wasn’t able to post it with the image until I shared it from your FB post.) Thanks again!

  2. Psalm 1:1 (ESV) talks about avoiding ungodly influence:

    Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers.
