Choosing Friends

He who walks with wise men will be wise,
But the companion of fools will be destroyed.

Five Thoughts on Friendship
1. Follow Jesus’ model
“We should learn from Jesus that the essential quality in the heart of friendship is not the desire to have friends, but the desire to be a friend.” – J.R. Miller

2. Pray for your kids – to have wisdom in discernment in choosing friends wisely.

3. Talk to your children – about being the influencer in the relationship.

4. Be hospitable – Make your home the place others come to visit.
The righteous should choose his friends carefully,
For the way of the wicked leads them astray.
~ Proverbs 12:26 ~

5. Develop friendships among your children
