Who Are You Following

"He quoted a proverb: 'Can a blind man guide a blind man?' Wouldn't they both end up in the ditch? An apprentice doesn't lecture the master. The point is to be careful who you follow as your teacher.'" Luke 6:39-40 (The Message)

I love the way that The Message Bible puts this out. Bang! It's too the point--no gray area there.

It is SO important to be careful whose company you keep or whose advice you seek. It's one of the many warnings those of us who have kids, give our kids isn't it? And here is our own heavenly Father giving us the same warning.

Pray for discernment. Pray that the Lord brings the right people into your life. If you are in a bad place, hanging with the wrong people, taking wrong advice, and in your spirit, you know it is wrong--pray for strength to stand up and leave. It's never too late!

You are worth fighting for. Jesus died for you didn't He?
