We wanted to reflect today on surrounding ourselves with godly and encouraging individuals.
Surrounding yourself with wicked people will spill into your own behavior. As it says in 1 Corinthians 15:33- “Do not be led astray: Bad company corrupts good morals”
In addition, Hebrews reminds us that it is important to come together and encourage each other as we hold onto this faith we profess!
~Hebrews 10:23-25- “Let us hold unwaveringly to our confession that gives us hope, for he who made the promise is trustworthy. We must consider how to rouse one another to love and good works. We should not stay away from our assembly, as is the custom of some, but encourage one another, and this all the more as you see the day drawing near.”
Remember to stay connected with the people in your life who are encouraging, who renew you spiritually, and who you can lean on. As it says in Bill Withers’ song, “Lean on Me,” we all need somebody to lean on.
~1 Thessalonians 5:11- “Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, as indeed you do.”
