Topic: The Danger Of Wrong Fellowship
To mingle wrongly is to struggle eternally; to dine with the wrong company is to die with the wrong company.
SCRIPTURE: Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 1 Corinthians 6:14
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To mingle wrongly is to struggle eternally; to dine with the wrong company is to die with the wrong company.
Fellowship is a friendly association, especially with people who share the same or similar interest. The wrong fellowship is one that has the potential to corrupt a person and prevent them from fulfilling their God-ordained destinies.
Please understand this: The greatest undoing of anybody is fellowshipping or mingling with the wrong people; you can’t mingle wrongly and escape struggles in life. If you are an eagle, then mingle with eagles; avoid the fellowship of vultures because vultures eat corruption but eagles do not taste corruption. If you are a lion, what are you doing in the company of hyenas? Hyenas eat rotten meat but lions do not eat anything that is rotten.
It was by fellowshipping with the wrong friend (Jonadab) that Amnon ruined his destiny and lost his life eternally on the account of wrong advice. (2 Samuel 13:1-29).
Beloved, your company determines your destiny; to mingle wrongly is to struggle eternally; who you follow determines what follows you. To dine with the wrong company is to die with the wrong company.
My counsel is, avoid the wrong association in much the same you would avoid cancer. Anybody who is not going in your direction does not deserve your association. Friendship is not by force but by choice. Love is a command but friendship is a choice; you are to love liberally but relate carefully and selectively.
But you shall not be a victim, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: To mingle wrongly is to struggle eternally; to dine with the wrong company is to die with the wrong company.
Disconnect from any person whose influence makes you compromise your integrity with God.
Make it a daily prayer schedule for God to bring the right people into your life.
PRAYER: Lord, disconnect me from any wrong association I entered into knowingly or unknowingly. I refuse to allow the wrong fellowship ruin my destiny O Lord, in Jesus’ Name
