Surround Yourself With Good | 1 Corinthians 15:33-34Read This Passage: 1 Cor. 15:28-34
33 Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.” 34 Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame.1 Corinthians 15:33-34 NKJV
Something that all of us must understand is that God did not put us in this world to be by ourselves. No, we are surrounded by a lot of people, aren’t we? As we desire to accomplish our goals and to take possession of what the Lord has promised to us, we should understand that it is incredibly difficult to do it on our own. Is it impossible? Probably not, but again, it is incredibly difficult.
So, to tackle your dreams and to take possession of the blessings that God has for you, it is good for you to use the help of others. We all learned while we were growing up that it is easy for us to take on a challenge as a group rather than try to take on a challenge by ourselves. You see, with help around you, you can be lifted up when you have been worn out. With help around you, you can be encouraged when you’re feeling in despair. With this in mind, it is important that you are surrounded by good help rather than foolish help.
As said in Proverbs 13:20, those that walk with others that are wise will be wise while the companion of fools will be destroyed. So, be sure to surround yourself with good people that are also guided by God and His Word. When you’re surrounded by such people, you will certainly accomplish your dreams and take possession of what God has for you.
