6“Even your brother or your son or your daughter or the wife you love or your closest friend may secretly encourage you to worship other gods, gods that you and your ancestors have never worshiped.
Do not make friends with a hot-tempered person, do not associate with one easily angered, or you may learn their ways and get yourself ensnared.
Proverbs 22: 24 -25
Questions: Are there some friendships that are unwise or harmful to us? What
could you do about this?
Prayer: Dear God, please help us to be careful and wise in choosing our friends. Please help me to be a friend who points people to you not turns them away. If we are stuck in unhealthy friendships, please give us wisdom to know what to do. Amen.
