Be Selective When You Choose Friends As You Do Not Want To Be Led Astray
We are told in Proverbs chapter 12:26 that “The righteous should choose his friends carefully, for the way of the wicked leads them astray.” OlyLife recommends that you teach your children to be very selective in picking their friends as who they choose can make a huge difference in the peer pressures that they will face as they mature. If you find that you or your children have not chosen friends wisely, then OlyLife encourages you to take action. This can be done in a non-offensive way by slowly creating more distance with those who are more likely to lead you or your children toward the dark side. Take the time to establish new friendships that you believe will have a more positive impact on your spiritual walk.
When You Carefully Choose Good Friends You Can Help Each Other
As you make new friends perhaps at church, in community volunteer groups, or at work, you may find that you can be a good accountability partner for them and they for you. This goes for your children as well. When someone gets a bit rowdy and comes up with a not so smart idea, a good friend can help pull in the reins and keep things on track so no catastrophe happens. So, choose your friends carefully and get closer to making the most of your one and only life – That’s OlyLife!
