Avoid Bad Friends In Your Marriage

Friends could be one of the greatest blessings to your life. They could also be one of the greatest regrets of your life depending on which type of friends they are.
 
 
Bible says in Pro17:17
"A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity".
 
Even the Bible recognizes that a friend loves at all times.
 
People are an offshoot of who they are. A bad person will definitely be a bad friend. You can not give what you do not have. Some people want to be good friends but they don't just have what it takes to be.
 
There are certain qualities that a good friend must have. If a person does not have those qualities, there is nothing anybody can do about it.
 
You have to be wise enough to know the qualities that are helpful for you and your marriage. As a married couple, all your life's goal is to make the covenant relationship between you and your spouse fruitful.
 
Anything or anyone that will come against this should go.
 
Maybe at the particular time or stage your marriage is, you need certain qualities in your friend, at that time if he/she doesn't possess such qualities, that friend isn't right for you.
 
There are counsels you receive from a friend that can save your marriage.
 
Pro 27:17 says
Iron sharpenth Iron, so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
 
There are also counsels one receives from a friend that cancels not only one's marriage but also one's destiny.
 
The effect of wrong friends can be seen both in attitudes and actions of the one influenced. A change in attitude towards your spouse as a result of listening to a friend is a bad sign.
 
Pro 27:6 'faithful are the wounds of a friend, but the kisses of an enemy is deceitful'.
 
A friend is supposed to give you counsels that will produce positive change in your life as a married couple.
 
When you notice a changes in your words, thoughts, attitudes and actions influenced by a friend in a negative way, it is time to quit that friendship.
 
A friendship that doesn't move you towards positively affecting your home and family is not a good one. A friend that will not encourage you to sacrifice, pray and work things together in your marriage is not good for you.
 
Friends that will encourage you to enjoy yourself, go to parties, buy and change clothes like a chameleon is not good for you.
 
Some friends would even introduce one to bad habits like keeping late nights, viewing porn, smoking, drinking and the rest.
 
Others teach their friends in a subtle way to lie, to be insincere and to insist on their own.
 
Any friend that teaches you to exalt the works of the flesh is not good for you.
 
Make up your mind to only make friends with godly people, after all friendship is by choice not by force.
 
Protect your marriage.
 
God bless your marriage.
