Your Friends

2nd Timothy 2:22 says,”Run from anything that stimulates youthful lust. Follow anything that makes you want to do right. Pursue faith and love and peace, and enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts.” (NLT)

This scripture is so basic for the single woman.  It’s telling us to stay away from situations where we might just lose control.   You know your weaknesses and that means sometimes having to tell your friends “no” when they’re trying to get you to go somewhere that you’re not comfortable with.  But if they’re truly friends, you won’t have to constantly say no because they will be uplifting you and holding you accountable in your decisions as well as you being able to hold them accountable.  “Follow anything that makes you want to do right.” (Emphasis is mine.)  A godly friend will make you want to walk the right path!

“Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts.”  Yes, we want that in a mate, but we also want that in our friends!  As a matter of fact, anything that you are looking for in a mate, you should be looking for in a friendship.  Something to think about!
