A person who supports you and agrees with you in all you do, even if it be a wrong thing is not a good friend, for a good friend also corrects, tells us when we are wrong for his intention is our welfare all the time.
God created us, yet when He came to His own, they did not receive Him but they hated Him for reason Christ Himself tells us as stated below...
"The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me because I testify of it that its works are evil." John 7:7 (NKJV)
It is useless to break down the mirror if it shows what's wrong in you, for by breaking down the mirror or throwing it away from your house you will not become clean, however let's be thankful to it for it reveals us our true state and lets us know where we need to work on to get better and head towards to be the best.
The light of God reveals all the evil things in our life which we never saw when in darkness, however when we are exposed to His light, we truly know who we are and the best part is, this light is not just a revealing light but also it will clear off all the evil in our life, if we allow God to do it and take control of our life.
Dear One!!! God is our true Friend, He seeks our welfare, He wants us to come out from the darkness and the dungeon of sin and live a holy and blessed life and at the same time the devil is our enemy, he seeks our destruction and will applaud us to hell, he will encourage us to do wrong.
Whom would you choose to befriend? Who do you think is right for you?
After a long experience with every possible circumstance in life, this is what Joshua the great warrior has to tell us....
"But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.Ē " Joshua 24:15 (NKJV)
The wisest man (King Solomon) who ever lived concluded this as the experience of his life....
"Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:
"Fear God and keep His commandments,
For this is manís all.
For God will bring every work into judgment,
Including every secret thing,
Whether good or evil. " Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 (NKJV)
If we could learn from the experience of others, let's do it from Joshua's & Solomon's and also let's carefully ponder and decide Who is our true Friend and on Whom should we depend always.
