Welcome back readers!! I hope you having an Encouraging Filled Week! Today, we are going to talk about Positive Influences. Have you ever heard the old saying, “You will be known by the company you keep”? Are you spending time with positive influences or negative influences? Try to spend time with other encouraging, uplifting, positive people. Here is the best advice I received about influences, “If Jesus returned at this very moment….would you be embarrassed by who you are around or what you are doing right then?”
The Bible reminds us in:
2 Corinthians 6:14: “Do not be mismatched with unbelievers. For what partnership is there between righteousness and lawlessness? Or what fellowship does light have with darkness?”
James 3:18: “And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.”
Ephesians 4:16: “He keep us in step with each other. His very breath and blood flow through us, nourishing us so that we will grow up healthy in God, full of His love.”
What I can do to have positive influences in my life? You need healthy fellowship with other believers. Do not share in negative talk or gossip. Encourage your family and friends. Smile. Be kind. Forgive. Actively guard your mind. Watch your tongue. YOU CAN BE THE GOOD INFLUENCE IN SOMEONE ELSE’S LIFE!!!
Be a blessing to others,
