TO THE BIBLE: Philippians 2:14-15
“Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world.”
In making decisions that’ll lead you towards success and victory, you must identify what your values are in life. That means you ought to determine the things that are most important to you and have a clear understanding of your purpose on earth.
One of the reasons you must consciously address this issue is that it helps you determine the kind of friendships you should keep. Your relationships have a lot to do with the way your life will eventually turn out. Remember, the Bible says, ‘Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits”’ (1 Corinthians 15:33). Those with whom you associate will determine whether or not you’d be successful in life. Hence, there’s no use keeping relationships that distract you from fulfilling God’s purpose for your life. You should only keep such relationships that can enhance your character, and help you achieve your dreams.
What’s your purpose? What are your values? Now is the right time to ask yourself these essential questions and let the Holy Spirit guide you in answering them. Your success, prosperity and fulfillment depend on them. So, make a deliberate effort to address them now that you’re young.
Proverbs 27:17; 2 Timothy 3:16
Dear heavenly Father, I commit my dreams, goals and friendships to you today. I receive wisdom, knowledge and understanding to choose the right friends; those that will improve my character and help me fulfill your destiny for my life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Re-evaluate your friendships today and determine which ones you must redefine.
