Fast Friends?

20140627-164401-60241200.jpg

Some of the greatest assets and liabilities in your life are the people that you allow in your life.

Have you ever stopped to think about who your friends are?

Who do you hang out with?

Who do you relax around?

Who makes you feel comfortable?

Having friends is a great thing…but it can also be a bad thing.

Why? I’m glad you asked.

Not all of the people in your life are good for your life.

My pastor, Micah Pelkey recently said to me; “Life moves at the speed of relationships.”

Wow! What a statement!

Don’t like the speed or direction of your life right now?

Maybe you should look at whom you have allowed into your world.

Again, friends are awesome, we all need them.

We just need to be willing to take an inventory of those who are in our world.

(In doing so we should also be willing to eliminate those who are not adding to our lives in a positive way. If someone is not adding to us, they are subtracting from us.)

Never forget that those closest to you determine your level of success. – John Maxwell.

  1. Great thoughts!
    When talking with students I mentor, I often find they are either too exuberant in their desire to remove ALL different influences or too guarded to even examine their circle of friends to be able to adequately evaluate the need for it. I’ve started asking them to name the 3 or 4 people that they spend the most time with. Are those who you are closest to pouring into your life or draining it? Are they encouraging you to draw closer to God or pulling you further from Him (whether intentionally or not)?
