Many will say they are loyal friends, but who can find one who is truly reliable?
Anyone can be "Friends". We usually think friends are the ones we hang out with at school. The ones we've always known. The ones who are "There for us". But what really is a friend?
Friends are the ones who support us on our journey to God. Friends are the ones who never forget you. Leave you behind. Or send you straight to the devil. Friends are the ones who never leave your side no matter what.
Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.
It is said- And is true, that God is the greatest friend. Even when you sin, He loves you. Even when you disobey him, He loves you. And he'll never leave your side- Even through the tough stuff.
You know, some friends push you away from God. You can be in God's arms one moments, making fun of kids the next. Doing drugs, drinking, smoking... Those are ALL things friends can get you to do. The devil over takes them, and uses them to manipulate you. That's why God is the greatest friend. He will never let you go. Never push you to the devil. Never abuse you. Never hate you.
If a friend makes you feel embarrassed about loving God- They are not a friend worth having. A friend worth having, pushes you to the father. And never lets you look back...
Push away the bad friends. Don't disobey God, and stick to a friend that will never benefit -but ruin- your relationship with the father.
Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.
Verse- Psalm 56:3-4
