Who Are Your Friends?

“A man of too many friends comes to ruin.” –Proverbs 18:24
(Friendship Part 1)
 
With few exceptions, your success in life depends on your ability to establish and maintain relationships with the right people.
 
According to a report by the American Management Association the overwhelming consensus of 200 managers who participated in a survey, was that the most important skill of an executive is his or her ability to get along with people. They rated this ability as more vital than intelligence, decisiveness, knowledge, or job skills.
 
Quite frankly, none of us makes very many true friends in life— at least, we better not! Solomon warns, “A man of too many friends comes to ruin.” Friendship requires time, energy, sacrifice, and investing yourself. And not every so-called friend will prove to be one, as Jeremiah warned King Zedekiah: “They misled you and overcame you – those trusted friends of yours. Your feet are sunk in the mud; your friends have deserted you” (Jeremiah 38:22).
 
The wrong friend will betray you, as Judas proved with Jesus. So here’s a good rule of thumb: “Be friendly to everyone, but don’t have everyone as a friend.” Solomon said, “The godly give good advice to their friends; the wicked lead them astray” (Proverbs 12:26).
 
Charles Spurgeon said, ‘A man is known by the company he shuns, as well as the company he keeps.” The Hebrew word for “choose” is tur, and in the Old Testament it refers to a man like a surveyor who searches out land. So if you’re wise, you’ll explore and evaluate your friendships before you enter into them. You say, “But I’m lonely.” As George Washington said, “It is better to be alone than in bad company.” Devotional// Word For You Today 🙂

Two Hearts (One Beat)

Happy Sunday everyone. I hope you all are doing well. So today we are continuing the marriage series. In today’s blog, I will sharing with you another Youtube channel that discusses marital advice and etc. I believe that there’s always something to learn whether you are in a relationship or not. As you watch these videos, please take notes. Share it with your friends and their friends. Until next time, be blessed & encouraged.

Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
23 The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.”
24 That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh. (Genesis 2:22-24)

A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones. (Proverbs 12:4)

My Helper

My Helper

To be without a friend is to be poor indeed. – Tanzania

It’s Saturday. What a beautiful day in the neighborhood. I hope all is well with you all. Today be a blessing to someone. Live Life. Tomorrow is not guaranteed to no man. “Life comes with no guarantees, no time outs, no second chances. You just have to live life to the fullest. Tell someone what they mean to you and tell someone off, speak out, dance in the pouring rain, hold someone’s hand, comfort a friend, fall asleep watching the sun come up, stay up late, be a flirt, and smile until your face hurts. Don’t be afraid to take chances or fall in love and most of all, live in the moment because every second you spend angry or upset is a second of happiness you can never get back.”

We all need a helper in our lives. Someone who can listen to us and be there in our times of needs and vise versa. We can’t do it all alone. Good friends are hard to come by majority of the times. You never know who you will meet and that person can be your helper, your friend for a lifetime. Not everyone you meet is or should be classified as your friend. The term “friends” is used a lot in our generation. You must learn to differentiate. So be a helper. Give a helping hand to someone and be blessed. Give not to get something in return but from your heart. Someone needs you. Radiate your light.

I Care For You

I Care For You

To be without a friend is to be poor indeed. ~ Tanzanian proverb

Today is a new day. Make it count. Be of help in anyway. Someone, somewhere is looking up to you. Reach your hands out. Smile while doing that deed because Jesus loves you. You are the change you want to see in the world. One step at a time but that time is precious, so give it your all.
