Day 3: Who are your friends?

31 days of Godly Womanhood

Welcome to Day 3! (Go here for a list of all 31 Days posts.)

Let's jump in --

"...do not spend your strength on women, 
your vigor on those who ruin kings."

In this verse, Lemuel's mom is making a pretty straightforward point. Don't spend all of your time/energy/strength with people who are bad influences.

Don't waste your strength seeking out physical pleasure.

Don't hang out with people who are out to ruin others.

(Some our current world leaders need to hear this verse.)

I'll hit on this more tomorrow, but we need to take a look at what we set our minds on. What things do we allow to influence us?

Do we hang out with people who are interested in tearing others (and probably us) down? Or do we share our lives with those who help build us up?

"Therefore, encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing."
- 1 Thessalonians 5:11

Be careful who you hang out with -- they affect you more than you realize.
