TITLE: Who Are Your Friends?

As human beings we are sociable by nature. The kind of people we chose to socialize and associate ourselves with ultimately tell a story about us. What kind of story can be told about you based on the type of people others see you with on a regular basis?
We tend to associate with and or befriend people who have something in common with us. The kind of friends that we keep usually are people who have similar view to our own. We often attach ourselves to those that have the same values as we do. The lifestyles that others we know lead can be good or bad. What do people think about us when we are closely associated regularly with someone who is not living in a good way. For example imagine you have five good friends that you see all the time. You are a christian man or woman who has two friends that are involved in wicca and one friend that is into shammanism along with two others that are drug dealers. What would this say about you? Would it look like you are walking the talk of your faith in God?
Or would others be confused as to what you believe and what are your value systems that you live by. If I were looking at someone who lived like this I would assume they are firstly not a Christian man or woman. Secondly I would be concerned that if I associated with someone like that it would be risky business to say the least. Who we associate with regularly does in fact say something about who we are. If you are around people with honesty and integrity who were also Christians like yourself, I would base my thoughts about you by what I see. The impression we make to others is often a direct result of who we spend our time with.

You made some very good points in this writing. Please have someone proofread your work. There are some misspellings. Also, put a space between paragraphs. It will be easier to read. You are very insightful. Keep on writing!
