Bible Verse for Today
“I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them.” (Romans 16:17)
One of the factors that cause backwardness or stagnancy in life is associating yourself with friends that are of dubious character.
They influence a life negatively in the way they do things. They do things that are against the word of God.
When we avoid them and keep focus on God, we get blessed. Psalm 1:1 “Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers.”
Something again about them is that they are always critical and judgmental, self-centered, thinking foolishly. Anytime you want to rise above them, they find every means to bring you down to their level. Joseph experienced this, not even from friends but from his own brothers.
Most of them are found in the place of worship, they preach false doctrines and try to mislead people. Paul said that because the influence of such people is corrosive and easily cancels out all virtues and good character in others, they must be avoided.
These kind of people are not for Christ. They are only for their selves and will never allow people to rise up above them.
