Not all friends are true friends.
Maybe you’ve experienced that.
People can seem fine, but in reality, can hurt or even destroy.
In choosing friends it should be a matter of prayer. God knows the intent of people’s hearts.
“The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.” Proverbs 12:26
Choose friends carefully. It’s an admonition that we need to take seriously. We also need to pray that our kids and grandkids will have the insight to choose their friends carefully. Ungodly influences can come cloaked in friendship. Those can literally lead us away from God’s plan. Yes, choose carefully.
Lord Jesus, influences come from all over. They can even come from people who act as friends. Please guard us from any of those. Keep Your hand on our children and grandchildren as well.
