Your friends determine the direction and the quality of your life. God uses human relationships to impact our relationship with Him. These relationships can be for good or bad.

Our culture has changed our ability to grasp the meaning for our lifestyle. Read the Bible! If you believe in life after death, the wise grows wiser about eternity, but a companionship of fools does harm. Bad company corrupts good character. God uses good friends and acquaintances for a spiritual impact.

Attend a church of your choice and find out more. God gives everybody a purpose. Will you cooperate to obtain his desires?

Providential relationships often start around an awkward moment or maybe in a causal conversation. Some people believe it is wise to be more intentional to spread the word of faith. It never hurts to use a person’s God given purpose.
