Caution For Friendships
Do not make friends with a hot tempered person or associate with one easily angered, or you may learn their ways and get yourself ensnared,(trapped) in their ways. As a Christian, we learn what the Lord wants and leads us to and away from. We all want to have friendships but sometimes we find that those friends end up hurting us and this can lead to vengeance, it is best to just walk away and pray for them. Read More Below.
We may get angry and feel vengeful, wanting to retaliate against someone that has been aggressive toward us, this is not the right thing to do, either in actions or in words. Our world is filled with vengeance today, whether it is physically and or emotionally hurting someone or going after them on social media.
We should not do this, be like Christ by turning the other cheek. (Matthew 5:39) living peacefully with all, Revenge is a dish never to be served. Christ taught us to Love even our enemies (Matthew 5: 43-48) Paul reiterates this teaching in these verses, imploring us not to be overcome by evil but instead to overcome evil with good. Leave everything else, including vengeance, to God. If a person truly wants to be a friend, they will change their ways, repent and ask for your forgiveness, never letting aggressiveness into your friendship again. If a person is unable to recognize their transgressions, walk away and pray. Proverbs 12:13 An evil man is ensnared by the transgression of his lips, But the righteous will escape from trouble.
"each person who turns to God in genuine repentance and faith will be saved" The Lord can change those who truly want to walk with him.
Lord, we pray for those who are struggling in their friendships or relationships today. We ask that you intervene here because some are reluctant to say what they may be feeling in order to keep the calm or simply afraid of reprisal. Lord lift up friendships and relationships to your meaning of, and Bless those who are willing to change their ways to feel the true meaning of a friendship... Amen
We are a growing group of people praying daily for and with others. We were led to start an online ministry to deliver what is needed more now than ever, a place where you can go to easily to submit a prayer request or requests involving others to pray for your needs. The Power of Prayer. Matthew 18:20- For where two or more come together in my name, there I am among them. You are never alone in prayer. The Power Of Numbers Praying.
We ask you to pray for this ministry, for its success in helping others in need of prayer.
2 Corinthians 2:17
"Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as those sent from God."
