“When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee: to deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh forward things.”
M46 Challenge: Talk to your children about the importance of using wisdom in choosing friends. Share with them how wisdom can help and protect them from relationships with the wrong people.
Thomas Aquinas said, “There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship.” Can you think of a time when circumstances helped you to realize who your true friends really were (are)?
Friends are not defined or selected simply because we live, work, or study in proximity to each other. Rather, we must teach our children that friends are determined according to common interests, shared values, and a willingness to hold each other up in moments of struggle or need.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, help my child to use wisdom when choosing friends, and to avoid relationships with the wrong people. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Thoughts: Read Proverbs 18:24 and 1 Cor 15:33. Who are your true friends?
