Quality of Friends

What's the quality of your friends?
Who are the people you hang around with?

We all love to have a bunch of friends, but have we ever thought about the people we are hanging around with? Sure most our friends aren't druggies or anything bad like that, but have we ever thought about their character deep down?

I'm pretty blessed to have a group of amazing friends. However, as I look at some of their hearts I see that they aren't truly following God and aren't actually "walking the walk". I know none of us are perfect, but as we look into our friend's lives we need to see a general fruit producing. Are they kind to their siblings? Do they gossip behind people's backs? Do they talk to you only when they want to? Do they honor their parents? These questions really make you look at your friends hearts. I'm not saying you should judge them, but I am saying you shouldn't hang around them as much and make them your close friends. You are who you hang around with.

The Bible says,
2 Corinthians 6:14
Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?

When choosing our close friends we need to choose people whose hearts are pleasing to God. Sure they may not be the coolest kids on the block, but they are sure cool to God. The kids who are building up treasure in heaven is who you want to rub off on you.

I hope this post has encouraged you to hang around the right kinds of friends...they are hard to find, but are such a blessing to have. Remember: Jesus is the best friend you will EVER have! :)

Your sister in Christ,
