DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Follow Not The Advice Of The Wicked
There is joy in obeying God and refusing to listen to those who give wrong advice. As believers, we must not make friends or associate with those who mock what God considers important. Do your friends build up your faith, or do they tear it down? True friends should help you to draw closer to God, not hinder your relationship with Him. Only two paths of life lay before us. God’s way of obedience or the way of rebellion and destruction. Be sure to choose God’s path because the path you choose determines where you will spend eternity. You can learn how to follow God by meditating on His word. This means spending time reading and thinking about what you have read.
Point of Emphasis: Those who don’t trust and obey God have meaningless lives that may be blown away like dust.
Prayer Point: O Lord, help me to always have a smooth relationship with you (God) as long as I live.
