Psalm 1:1 “Happy are those who reject the advice of evil people, who do not follow the example of sinners or join those who have no use for God.”
Discussion: Have you ever had friends who had a bad influence on you? And did you end the friendship, or are you currently still friends? Have they changed you, or are you changing them?
Prayer: Pray to God for strength to be able to stand up for what is right. To be able to rather lead someone to God, than to allow them to drag you down (and this goes for friends as well as any other persons you have contact with).
Spiritual Growth Challenge: We all have someone in our life that is not convinced of the power of God, or who have some strange believes about Christianity. Take the bold step today to just have a normal conversation with that person, and mention something God has done for you. And pray for wisdom to be able to handle the conversation wisely, no matter which direction it heads into.
