Have you ever been hurt by someone you thought to be your friend? It is a chore in connecting with the right people. But it doesn't have to be. Be it as it may, God created us to be relational people. Keep that thought because I have something pertinent to share. God won't ever leave us hanging, no matter what situation we face, He will not leave us. So, when deciding to connect with others, we should ensure we connect with our Father, the one who created friendship. Let's ask Jesus, our true friend, who sticks closer than a brother, to help us seek those exhibiting positive energy. Proverbs 13:20 states: Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm. Friends are needed for sure, but only if they are from the Lord. If the folk you are hanging around are always negative, it will affect your temple. Remember, hurt people will hurt others. Let's talk about choosing the right friends, because, believe it or not, friends are truly needed.
