You become infected by it.

Updated on June 19, 2012

He is m y best friend


Be careful how you choose

"Don't hang out with angry people; don't keep company with hotheads. Bad temper is contagious—don't get infected." (Proverbs 22:24-25 MSG)

Stay away from the disease unless you become infected by it.

How do you describe your friends? Are they positive, bright and cheery? Or, are they negative Nellie’s? When you are with them are you happy or sad?

I know people that instead of seeing flowers, they see weeds. Beware, if you continue, that friendship they will suck all the life and joy out of you. It is the same thing with people who are always angry or self centered. Eventually you will become like them. Oh what a pitiful waste of a life and time.

The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray. Proverbs 12:26 New International Version

I know, at first it will be difficult, but ask for Gods guidance to lead you to places and people who are positive and encouraging. Why not start with signing up for Christian web site where you can chat with others. When you listen to Christian radio stations there is always event mentioned you can attend. Trust God, he will never let you down and will guide you to the right places and people.

A kind heart Is a fountain of gladness making everything freshen into smiles. Washington Irving

Now be careful. There are those who pretend to always be happy no matter what comes their way. That is not natural or healthy. They are phonies and empty.

The greatest part of our happiness depends on our dispositions, not our circumstances. Martha Washington

What kind of dispositions do your friends have? Does it drag you down, or build you up?

Prayer: I humble request Jehovah Rohi )God our Sheppard)to lead me away from destructive relationship and into loving fulfilling camaraderie with positive people. I ask this in the name of the one with whom I have a deep and loving kinship with, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
