Goodseed Daily Devotional 21st March 2023
TOPIC: BE WITH THE RIGHT PEOPLE
SCRIPTURE: Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
The matter of relationship is of critical importance to life and destiny fulfilment. The quality of your relationship determines the quality of your destiny. That is why it is wisdom not to relate carelessly.
Today, I will give you two categories of people to relate with:
i. Relate with people who see the treasure in you (2 Cor. 4:7).
Relate with people who are excited about you and about what you represent. These are people who see the treasure in you; they are excited about you and what you represent.
You know, there are people who celebrate you, and people who tolerate you. Don’t hang around people who tolerate you; hang around people who celebrate you, people who see the treasure in you, and are excited about you and what you represent.
ii. Relate with people who brighten your vision and inflame your passion (Ps. 36:9b).
Relate with people who brighten your vision. These are people in whose light, you see light (Ps. 36:9b). Their vision is similar to yours. They are like Elizabeth who makes the baby in your womb to kick. When you talk with them, you are en-fired because you have similar mind-sets.
On the other hand, don’t relate with people who kill your vision. Don’t relate with people who after hearing your vision, tell you, “Don’t think like that. Who is thinking like that these days? What you are thinking about is not possible in this country.” They deflate your enthusiasm and puncture your positivism.
Beloved, run away from vision killers; associate with vision enhancers.
Relate with people who accept and celebrate you.
PRAYERS: Lord, I ask for the grace to identify and relate with the right kind of people. Help me to also identify and avoid who not to relate with, in Jesus’ Name.
