In this world, a group of friends can fall into two categories: the group that helps you build yourself and the group that helps you destroy yourself. True friends lift you up when you are feeling downcast. They help you plan and support your goals in a positive manner. They tell you when you are wrong but tell you out of love. They help keep you on the right path in life. They have our BEST interest in heart. They are TRUE.  You may not see them every day but you know they keep it real when you do see or talk to them. You can identify them by their actions. They won’t tell you anything or advise you to do anything that will make you look imprudent or destroy you. Who would want a group of friends who are constantly keeping up trouble? Encouraging you to do dirt? Being messy? Stabbing you in the back? Who would? True friends walk in truth; no, they are not perfect but they do their best to keep it real. True friends don’t get you in trouble. They aren’t messy. They don’t stab you in the back. They don’t encourage you to do dirt. Check your group of friends. Embracing the wrong group can put you in bad predicaments in life and can cause you to lose out on some good things. Check your group of friends. Proverbs 13:20 warns us that we should “Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm.” – S.L.M.
