Choose what you do with your time carefully, if you really want to see yourself achieving your goals. People are poor and in need most as a result of the friends they choose. Bible Reading: Proverbs 7:1-27.
What you did with your time, the places you went, and the way you utilized your gifts and talents will determine if you are in for achieving your goals or not. Be wise. Choose to do things that will help your destiny and build abundant wealth for you.
Do not be part of those void of understanding. Proverbs 7:7. And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding.

Always ask yourself these questions
✍🏼Are the choices I make helping or hurting my destiny, finances, and relationships?
✍🏼Are the things I do at work, home, or anywhere helping or hurting my finances and destiny?
✍🏼Are the places I go helping or hurting me?
✍🏼Are the things I watch helping or hurting me?
✍🏼Are the people I interact with helping or hurting me?
Be honest with yourself if you really want to see yourself achieving your goals. If you have made hurtful choices, you can retrace your steps and start all over again.
🎯1. Value the instructions of God and those of your fathers. Proverbs 7:2 _Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye._ Instructions prevent destructions. They are also your highway to wealth. So, value them and keep them as the apple of your eyes.
🎯2. Avoid strange women and men. Proverbs 7:5. That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words. Anybody who does not believe what you believe or who is not going where you are going is a strange woman or man. Avoid them.
🎯3. Be careful what you look at. Proverbs 7:6. For at the window of my house I looked through my casement. Many have lost it by looking at the wrong things – pornography, window shopping, naked women/men, etc. David lost it when he looked at naked Bethsheba. Watch what you watch!
🎯4. Run from dangerous places, associations, habits, and meeting joints. Proverbs 7:8. Passing through the street near her corner, and he went the way to her house. There are parties, clubs, meetings, etc., not to attend. There are places you should not go to.
🎯5. Avoid people with dubious hearts. Proverbs 7:10 _And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of a harlot, and subtil of heart. Be careful of those who are not what they claim to be. Beware of deceptive people who fan you with their mouth, but burn you with their actions.
🎯6. Be careful of gifts and offerings that are inimical to your future. Proverbs 7:14. I have peace offerings with me; this day have I paid my vows. I know from experience that it is difficult to say no to gifts and offerings.
But, friends, you must build the capacity to say no. This may even annoy the giver. You are not meant to accept all offerings and gifts. Be sensitive to discern between the good and the bad gifts.
🎯7. Consciously decide who to follow to anywhere. Proverbs 7:22. He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;
👉🏾Many have died, killed, been sexually abused/assaulted, been exploited or imprisoned in Dubai, Italy, Libya, etc. because they followed people foolishly based on false promises and presentations.
Proverbs 7:23. Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life.
👉🏾Others are into drugs, joined cults, became internet scammers (yahoo yahoo), or evil because of who they followed. Beware if you truly want to see yourself achieving your goals.
☑️Consciously choose who to associate with, what to do, and where to go? Hearken to my advice today. Proverbs 7:24. Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth.
☑️Choose not to join the wrong band or follow the wrong people to go astray. Proverbs 7:25. Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths.
Many have suffered for the wrong choice, some have died in the process, others have missed it including strong men of God. Proverbs 7:26. For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her.
Please avoid everything and anything that will shorten your life, or take you to hell here on earth and/or in eternity. Proverbs 7:27. Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.
Choose wisely. Choose carefully to build wealth and prosperity in words, thoughts, and deeds. Prayer. Lord, help me to make the right choices at all times for wealth and posterity.
Be blessed. Stay blessed. 🙏🏼
