TITLE: WHO IS YOUR FRIEND?
AUTHORED BY PASTOR CHARLES AND FAVOUR CHUKWUEMEZIE
ECCLESIASTES 4:9 “Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.”
Friendship is not by longevity of companionship; friendship is by visible proofs. You are not my friend because we’ve been together, doing things together, living together in one house or in the same city or area, you are my friend when you perform the duties of a friend in my life.
Friends are born for adversity; when I fall, are you there to pick me up or do I look up and discover I have always been alone without realizing it? Two are better than one, not because they are two, but because of the result that is visible… good reward for their labour.
If you are not adding to my life, you must be subtracting. If someone comes into your life in the name of friendship, evaluate your friendship with this person… what do I stand to benefit, what am I expected to give, since I became friends with this person, have I grown better or declining?
Anybody you allow into your life will either bring you up or down. Don’t necessarily wait for bad things to occur before you evaluate to know who to drop and who to carry along. Friendship should be by choice. Walk the wise, you become wiser. Mingle with people who inspire you to greater heights. Know who is with you for what they can get and who is there because they really love you.
It is better to be ALONE than in BAD COMPANY.
PRAYER AND DECLARATION
LORD GOD, HELP ME KNOW TRUE FRIENDS AND GIVEME BOLDNESS TO DISCARD THE WRONG ONES, IN JESUS NAME… AMEN.
WORDS ON MARBLE
NO RELATIONSHIP LEAVES YOU THE SAME; IT EITHER TAKES YOU FURTHER OR BACKWARD… CHARLES CHUKWUEMEZIE
