My children have good friends. It is very simple. Your association matters a lot. The people you move with matter a lot. That’s just the truth of life.
The one who associates with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.
Proverbs 13:20 (NET)
It is the nature of man to always want to associate. God never made man live in isolation. No man can survive on his or her own. That is why your dad got married to your mum.
Same applies to your children. They always want to relate to the environment. As a matter of fact, it should be a source of concern for you if your child doesn’t relate with anyone. It should be a concern, really.
That being said, we ought to look out for the kind of association our children keep.
Let them know they can be deliberate and intentional about it.
Also, as parents, we should pray for them and their choices. Your prayers go a long way. Don’t be a careless parent. Always declare ‘My children have good friends’ to yourself and over the lives of your children.
Children, you should move freely with others in your environment. Nobody is an island. You need people to advance. Never think you can survive alone.
Walk with wise friends. Move about with those who are wise.
Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.
Proverbs 13:20 (ESV)
Do you want to suffer harm? I honestly do not think so. So choose your friends wisely and God will bless you. Amen
My children walk with the wise, therefore they are wise. My children have good friends.
Lord, make my children wiser in all their doings.
Choose your friends wisely and intentionally.
