THE RIGHT PEOPLE
“You are the average of the
5 people you spend the most time with.”
We have all heard the saying, “Show me your friends and I'll show you your future.”, but there is so much hidden truth within this statement because who we surround ourselves with dictates who we become.
Proverbs talks about this idea many times:
PROVERBS 12:26 | NIV
“The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.”
PROVERBS 13:20 | NLT
“Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in trouble.”
PROVERBS 27:17 | NIV
“As iron sharpens iron so one man sharpens another.”
We need to be surrounded by people who challenge us. A friend that can call us out and hold us to a higher level of living changes everything! We need to have people in our lives who bring us to that next level.
1. Find 5 people who are going to challenge you and call you higher. Pour into those relationships.
2. Look for people who are living what you want to become. Take advantage of their wisdom and experiences.
