Hello Purposeful People!
Thank you for listening to ‘Influential Friends’. Over the last week, I have had several discussions about how to be a good friend and even how to earn one. The important thing to remember is we must regard God as our friend. If our attention is on God and what He would have us learn from or perhaps advise someone in their current circumstance we will be able to love each other at all times because we will operate in the knowledge that God is working through them as well. We won’t be so quick to judge but will think what is it that God wants me to do with the information I have right now. When we pause long enough to hear from God we will react with him in mind.
As you listen ask yourself:
- Who am I influenced by?
- Am I an influencer?
- Is the person I want to imitate a believer in Christ?
