HERE ARE WAYS TO AVOID IDIOTS EVERYWHERE? TRY THESE 3 WAYS TO FIND REAL FRIENDS!
SURROUNDED BY IDIOTS
If you want to be truly successful in life, aside from serving Jesus, the single most effective thing you can do is to choose your closest friends wisely. Chaplain Ronnie Melancon said, “Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future.” As a Believer, I think everyone deserves to be loved and cared for. In fact, Jesus said that loving the unlovely is required of anyone who follows Him (Matthew 5:45-48). Yet, who we allow to influence us determines much of our life’s ultimate destination.

WHY IS IT HARD FOR YOU TO LET GO OF THE FOOLS?
Solomon wrote, “He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm,” (Proverbs 13:20). The apostle Paul echoed his sentiment when he said, “Bad company corrupts good morals,” (1 Corinthians 15:33).
MAKING GOOD FRIENDS IS OFTEN A PROCESS
