Make good friends and make the most of them, Because God does not work alone. In making man, He said, let us make man in our image.
David had his mighty men of David and he never lost a war. When Jesus came, He chose to work with men and women. BIBLE READING: Proverbs 5:1-23
Visions are personal, but to implement them, you need to make good friends with people. A wise man once said if you want to go fast, go alone; but if you want to go far, go with people.
Therefore, make good friends and maximize them.
🎯1. Make academic friends and maximize them. If you are a student, make friends with very intelligent students and maximize them. As a student, I made friends with people who helped me with their books (as I did not have any) and food. Make friends that will help you be a better student.
🎯2. Make business friends and maximize them. Two good heads are better than one. Find people in your line of business, befriend them and maximize them.
Are you a minister of the gospel, befriend good ministers. Allow the Holy Ghost to guide you.
🎯3. Marry a good person and maximize your spouse. Living and sleeping alone at a certain age is disastrous and dangerous. So, make good friends, enjoy and maximize them.
By all means, avoid a vacuum in relationships. Nature abhors a vacuum. When you fail to make good friends, nature will push bad people your way.
👉🏾For instance, when you are lonely, anything goes. Temptations are commoner to people who are lonely. So, make good friends and maximize them. In making friends,
☑️1. Make wise choices. Not everyone is qualified to be your friend. Proverbs 5:1. My son, attend unto my wisdom and bow thine ear to my understanding: Choose people who have the same vision, goal, values, and plans as you.
Choose people that will augment what you have not destroyed. Make good friends with people that will add value not subtract.
☑️2. Beware of flatterers. Proverbs 5:3. For the lips of a strange woman drop as a honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil: Beware of people who only praise and glorify you.
👉🏾Beware of people who turn the other way when they should be chastising you.
👉🏾Beware of flatteries and people who lie about your capability, strength, and results.
👉🏾Beware of people who pretend to be what they are not.
☑️3. Avoid people that will hurt your tomorrow. Proverbs 5:8. Remove thy way far from her and come not nigh the door of her house:
👉🏾There are people you should not connect with – consciously or unconsciously.
👉🏾There are places you should not go – awake or asleep.
👉🏾There are houses you should not enter – no matter the attraction.
If anyone is not adding value, cut them off.
☑️4. Protect your honor at all costs. Proverbs 5:9. Lest thou give thine honor unto others and thy years unto the cruel:
☑️5. Avoid people that will make you regret old age. Proverbs 5:11 _And thou mourn at the last when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,
👉🏾Avoid relationships that will end in regrets.
👉🏾Avoid activities and practices that will end in regret.
👉🏾Avoid hating instructions and good counsel. Proverbs 5:12. And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;
☑️6. Drink enough good water from your cistern. Proverbs 5:15. Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well. Water is life. Drink, but also watch the source.
👉🏾Be careful who refills your cup in meetings, gatherings, and parties.
👉🏾Be careful who you leave your open cup with within all outings.
☑️7. Play with your spouse. Proverbs 5:18 _Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth. Marry your friend. 👉🏾Marry somebody you can laugh and play with.
👉🏾Marry somebody that understands and admires you.
👉🏾Marry somebody you can go out with, swim with, read with, watch movies with, attend church with, and practically do any and everything with.
👉🏾Marry someone that gives you joy, whose presence triggers happiness and fulfillment.
☑️8. Enjoy healthy romance and sex. Proverbs 5:19. Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.
Romance and sex are medicinal. Sex is a 👉🏾wonderful exercise. 👉🏾Excellent stress manager.
👉🏾Amazing stimulant. 👉🏾Natural prevention of cancers, insomnia, and dementia.
🙏🏼Make romance and good sex with your spouse a way of life. Proverbs 5:20. And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger?
Therefore, do not sleep, live, or die alone. Proverbs 5:23. He shall die without instruction, and in the greatness of his folly, he shall go astray.
