When I was younger my parents always told me to take a look at my five closest friends. It is said that a person’s values and a persons character is reflected by their closest friends. I am by no means saying that you should not be close with an unbeliever. I believe that by having a relationship with those who do not have a relationship with God is a great way to share the gospel with them. However, I do believe that it is imperative to have friends who will encourage your walk with God and keep you accountable when you stumble. What kind of friend are you?
“I am a friend to all who fear you,
to all who follow your precepts.”
