Anchor Song: Friend Like That
Artist: Hawk Nelson
If the efficiency of Jesus could be limited by the kind of people around Him, please tell me where you got your immunity from negative associations from?
Mark 6:5 says – And because of their unbelief he couldn’t do any mighty miracles among them except to place his hands on a few sick people and heal them[TLB]. The fact that Jesus healed “a few sick people” shows He wanted to heal people, but the crowd had too much unbelief.
As you grow older, one of those things you will need to take more seriously is your association, your #SQUAD. The truth is, everyone changes with time, including you, so you should not always expect the people in your life to remain in alignment. While you were a student and the ultimate goal was graduating with an excellent grade, you might have been best friends with someone who shares a similar vision, but now that you are both making some money, that person might start to display some values that are dangerous to you.
Think about it, Jesus had 12 disciples and I believe He loved them all, but He didn’t take everyone to the Mount of Transfiguration, even at Gethsemane, He took Peter, James and John with Him to pray. Also, you might have had a #GANG built around partying, drinking and the likes, but you can’t remain active in that group if you ever want to stop doing those things.
Therefore, while you love everybody in and around your life, learn to determine the level of their influence. If you are always getting negative vibes from someone, please rearrange the relationship. If there is a close pal that’s always making fun of your vision, even if it’s a joke, you better shift. Some of the most hurtful things are said as jokes. While I can agree that some relationships last forever, only a few, if any should maintain the same level of influence over you. God Bless You!
