Motivational speaker, Jim Rohn, once said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” I have been so blessed to spend time with some amazing people…Kingdom shakers and God seekers. They have spoken life into me that included correction, rebukes and encouragement. One friend can just give me a look across the room and I know that I need to tone it down. Others can cause me to slow down and enjoy life and not strive so hard for the next task. I learned early on that if I don’t like who I am then I need to change who I hang around with.
What about you? Do you have any sweet friendships? If so, treasure them, tell them how much they mean to you and be a friend like them. If not, seek out new friends and be willing to be change. Does it take effort? Absolutely!!! But doesn’t anything of value?
