LESSONS ON GOOD FRIENDSHIP
Psalms 1:1-3 (1) – Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; (NKJV)
There is a common saying that “who you follow determines what follows you.” In other words, an association can make or mar one’s destiny. Therefore, you must frequently examine your friendship. This is important because, as seen in our Bible reading, every good friendship should be a source of blessing. If you discover that your bond with people is not improving your life, quit before it’s too late.
The second verse of today’s text says, “But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night.” This means that it’s not only avoiding ungodly friends that qualify a fellow for blessings but mainly delighting in God and meditating on His word. When you are rooted in the Lord, the foundation of your union with others will be strong. The friendship will also bear fruit like a tree planted by the riverside (Psalms 1:3).
Beloved, I encourage you to assess the depth of your love for God. Make the necessary changes, and you will see how impactful your life will be on others even as you reap the benefits of friendship.
Hymn: What a Friend We Have in Jesus—Joseph M. Scriven (1855)
1. Father, please establish me in a friendship that will bring glory to Your holy name.
2. Spend quality time praying with your family. Agree on that issue, and it will be perfected.
1. Father, deliver me from every ungodly and unfavourable engagement I am trapped in.
2. Before November ends, Father, connect me and establish me in a productive partnership in marriage, career, and soul-winning.
3. Father, help me to understand who I am and why I am in my current location.
BLESSED DAY AHEAD
