This week, we’re going to talk about the importance in the quality of your friendships.

Sometimes in life, we are going to have to make the tough decision of letting some friends go. 

I say tough, because if you have ever had to walk away from a friendship, you know it’s the farthest thing from being easy to do. 

Sometimes those friends are as close to you as family. Sometimes it’s the fact that you’re comfortable in your friendships and you don’t want to lose your friends.

Other times fear might hold us back, because we think that we can help our friend make good choices instead of going down the path that they’re headed on.

One of the hardest things I believe that we will ever do in life is end a friendship or a relationship that is not healthy. 

Have you ever heard the quote, “You become like the 5 people you spend the most time with. Choose carefully?”

I want you to think about this…have you ever been hanging around a friend who is negative…always complaining about everything and then afterward you find yourself complaining as well?

Or let’s change it. Have you ever been around someone who is super joyful and it lifted your spirits? 

That’s exactly what that quote is saying. The more you hang around someone, the more you will act like them. 

Now, I’m not saying that you can’t be nice to everyone or that you can’t engage in small talk with people who aren’t going in the same direction as you.

 But what I am saying is those are not people that you want to spend the most time with. The people you spend the most time with need to be going in the same direction that you want to be going when it comes to your walk with God.

1 Corinthians 15:33 says, “Do not be deceived: evil company corrupts good habits.”
