Less is Better

Oh! Church was awesome today! Particularly because i could relate to the topic. We had a talk show where we discussed ‘Association’. Different people had different views on how we as Believers should relate with Unbelievers in every aspect of our lives.
The issue of Friendships and Relationships is what took my interest. We are supposed to be particular about our circle of friends. We should drop anyone that isn’t making a positive impact on our lives;friends that don’t have the same values as you do and friends that don’t make you a better person both physically and spirituarly.
Just last year, i blogged about how Ive been disconnected from my friends due to new priorities and was feeling quite lonely. Unknown to me, i had dropped them because we didn’t share similar values you know. I attended a Christian High school and unconsciously retained the teachings and values instilled in me. Probably because i renewed my relationship with God when i graduated.
I’m a strong believer in the quote ‘Show me your friend and i’ll tell you who you are’ and also ‘Bad communication corrupts Good manners’. I strongly believe friendships are one of the most important things in life after God and family. The type of friends you have around you can either make or mar you.
I’m a very friendly person. I love having people around me. Buh i’ve come to realise less is better. You will agree with me that so many teenagers and youths have been mislead by their friends one way or the other. As a result of this, there’s a high rate of crime and immorality because everybody wants to be among. No one wants to be left out.
Now i’ve decided i’m gonna have as few friends as possible and more of acquintances. I have a great future ahead of me and i don’t need anyone to disrupt God’s plan for me. And for that to happen, i’m gonna have to cut off anything or anyone that will cause me to succumb to peer pressure. It’s not supposed to be an easy thing buh i know God is gonna help me.
I hope you will too. 🙂
