Topic: Right Company

“Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners” -1 Corinthians 15:31

Right company is connotes suitable persons whom you have around, for particular purposes. It refers to relating with people of the same interests, goals, passions, morals and spiritual background.

From scriptures, we understand that evil communication corrupts good manner. That means the kind of company you keep will not leave you neutral. It will either add to you, or subtract from you.
Again, the bible says in Amos 3:3 “Do two people walk together unless they’ve agreed to do so”. It is in the light of this that you can identify the right company as a teenager and the following points below can serve as guidelines.

  • Look for those who share the same faith belief and values. That is, you must look out for someone who is genuinely born again and committed to God (John 3:3).
  • Look for those who do not willingly go against laid down rules and regulations; both at home, school and in the church (Romans 13:1).
  • Look for those who love God and are interested in spiritual things such as reading the bible, praying, and not forsaking the assembling of the saints (that is, Christ- centered gatherings) (Hebrew 10:12). They must be those excited about everything God- centered.
  • Look for those who have goals in life; those who are focused and have a sense of direction. They should have personal goals which they consciously want to work towards.
  • Look for those who share the same interest with you, not those who will discourage you from your callings and aspirations but rather encourage you, even when it seems difficult.

Right company can easily be found when you fully depend on the Holy Spirit in guiding you. Friendship is by choice and not by force; and because the heart of man is deceitful, it is only the Holy Spirit that can discern the real intent of a man. God help you find and remain with the right company in Jesus name!

Remain blessed!
