THE IMPORTANCE OF REAL FRIENDS

Just another reminder this morning of how important the right people in your life are to your well-being.  Two people who truly care about you can be more of an inspiration than a whole crowd of people who barely know you.  And the saying that “we become the five people we spend time with most” is a reality.  It’s extremely important that you surround yourself with people who motivate, inspire, love and care about you and not people who bring you down.

Below is this mornings message from one of my friends:

Loved “Today’s Scripture

“…Become wise by walking with the wise; hang out with fools and watch your life fall to pieces…”

(Proverbs 13:20)

Who Are You Walking With?

It’s not only important how we spend our time, but with whom we spend it. The only thing that’s keeping some people from a new level of their destiny is wrong friendships. You may have to prune off some relationships that are not adding value to your life. Don’t hang around people who are not going anywhere, who have no goals or dreams, who compromise and take the easy way out. If you tolerate mediocrity, it will rub off on you. If you hang out with jealous, critical, unhappy people, you will end up jealous, critical, and unhappy. You cannot become who God created you to be hanging out with them.

Take a look at your friends. If your friends are winners, leaders, givers, and successful, if they have integrity and a spirit of excellence and are positive and motivated, those good qualities are going to rub off on you. Invest your time with them. They’re making you better.

Thank you Joni
