Day 306: Wise Friends

Day 306: Wise Friends
November 2, 2014 Neil Kennedy

Proverbs 2:16

Wise friends will rescue you from the Temptress— that smooth-talking Seductress Who’s faithless to the husband she married years ago, never gave a second thought to her promises before God.

Principle

Relationships leave a residue with us — good or bad.

Unfortunately, there are married women who entered their marriage without commitment to their husband, nor to the Lord. Her vows were flippant and meaningless. A relationship with her leads straight to hell. Her residue is destruction.

It’s important to have wise friends that can help rescue you when you’re facing temptation that comes by seductive, smooth-talking, faithless women. The residue of wise friends is protection.

A friend asked me to hold him accountable regarding a recurring temptation in his life. He was struggling. A few weeks later, after a few attempts to get a hold of him, I finally prevailed. I asked a couple of questions, and I realized that he wasn’t transparent. He was spinning his answers and diverting from my probe. Finally, I said, “You know, when a friend asks you to hold him accountable, but then stops talking to you, there’s probably a problem.”

It’s important to have wise friends that aren’t afraid to speak into your life — protecting you from destructive forces.

Remember:

Relationships leave a residue.
