TOPIC: KNOW YOUR FRIEND
TEXT: PROVERBS 18:24
The subject of friendship or company is important to life and destiny. This is because your friendship or company affects the direction of your life. Your friendship or company affects your mindset or thought process.
Your friendship affects your character and choices. Your friendship or company affects your outcome and your eternal destiny. So, in our study today, we shall be diagnosing who a friend is.
B. WHO IS A FRIEND?
1. A friend is a companion who is at home in your company (Gen. 38:12).
2. A friend is someone who is as your own soul to you. You treat him as you will treat yourself (Deut. 13:6).
3. A friend is someone who is quick to arrive and surround you in seasons of adversity (Job 2:11-13).
4. A friend is one who makes your burden their burden, your concern is their concern, and your pain is their pain (Job 42:10, PS. 35:13-14).
5. A friend is one who may hurt you to save or deliver you. But your enemy may hail you to ruin you (Prov. 27:6).
C. COUNSEL: Friendship must be allowed to happen and not forced to happen.
D. FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Your company determines your destiny. Friendship is not by force, it is by choice
E. PRACTICAL APPLICATION: KNOW YOUR FRIEND!
