*TOPIC: SHOW ME YOUR FRIEND*

*Read: 2 Samuel 13:1-22*
*MEMORISE: _Do not be deceived: "Evil company corrupts good habits."_ (1 Corinthians 15:33).*

*EXPOSITION*
Today is the International Day of Friendship. It also doubles as the World against Trafficking in Persons. Our topic today is therefore relevant.

“Show me your friend and I will tell who you are”. One may not be able to choose or have so much power over some of the factors that affect one’s life, but the issue of association, or the company one keeps must be carefully and critically considered, for progress and eventual destiny fulfilment. The kind of friends we move with must be carefully selected, and not to be left to chance.

*_He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will be destroyed_ (Prov. 13:20).* What a powerful poetic comparison! If one surrounds himself with wise people, even if he is not yet wise, he will soon be wise; the wisdom of friends will be replicated in life. In the same way, foolish friends will only make one more foolish, leading to destruction. It is said, “A sheep in company of dogs will soon taste faeces.”

In 1Corinthians 15:33, the apostle and great scholar, Paul, writes, *_Evil company corrupts good habits (Bad company corrupts good morals:_ NLT),* to drive home his point. The kind of friends one mingles with determines the direction of one’s life. Amnon was assisted in destroying the destiny of Tamar and his, by a friend, the subtle Jonadab *(2 Sam. 13:1ff).*

Friendship is not be force, but by choice. Choose wisely! *(cf. Prov.18:24).*

*PRAYER POINTS*
*1.* Lord, please, separate me from foolish friends, in Jesus’ name.
*2.* Lord, help me to surround myself with godly and wise people who are capable of influencing my life positively.
*3.* Lord, help Your Church to avoid ungodly alliances with the world that will corrupt the body of Christ. Rather, help us to influence the world positively for You

*EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: Job 21:25 – 24:6; Acts 23:31 – 24:17*
