Having the right kind of friends is critical to our living as God’s children. “For of this you can be sure: no immoral, impure or greedy person—such a man is an idolater—has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient. Therefore do not be partners with them” (Ephesians 5:5-7, New International Version). The old proverb says, “Do not be misled: Bad company corrupts good character” (1 Corinthians 15:33, NIV).

There are two parts to influence. First, influence is powerful; and second, influence is subtle. You might not let your friends push you completely off course, but you might let them nudge you off course and not even realize it. So pick good ones.
