Learning The Hard Way (2)

‘If sinners entice you, do not consent.’
Proverbs 1:10 NKJV

You’re asking for trouble when you choose the wrong friends. Somebody wisely said, ‘If you want to soar with eagles, you can’t run around with turkeys.’ Eventually you become like the people you spend the most time with; that’s why it’s so important to choose your friends wisely. The psalmist said, ‘Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners’ (Psalm 1:1 NKJV). Samson developed unhealthy relationships and they led him astray. So here’s the question: are your friends keeping you from living 100 per cent for God? Do they tear you down or build you up? When you’re with them, do you find yourself conforming to things that violate your convictions and your conscience – things you don’t feel good about doing? The book of Proverbs warns us repeatedly about negative associations: ‘My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent.’ Constant exposure to wrong attitudes and values will eventually take its toll on your life. It is always easier to pull someone down than it is to lift them up. So, what kind of friends should you keep? The kind who bring out the best in you, who lift you up, who encourage you, and make you a better person. ‘But aren’t we supposed to love everybody?’ you ask. Yes, but you’re not supposed to lean on them, listen to them, learn their wrong ways, and become like them. When it comes to choosing your friends, here’s the scriptural rule you should live by: ‘[Lord,] I am a friend to anyone who fears [respects] you – anyone who obeys your commandments’ (Psalm 119:63 NLT).

For…time would fail me to tell of…Samson.’
Hebrews 11:32 NKJV

Samson had incredible potential, but he threw it all away. Why? For several reasons. He failed to control his impulses. He was physically strong, but morally weak. He deliberately ignored God’s principles, and his life became a pathetic cycle of failures. He never learned; he kept making the same mistakes over and over. For him it was a kind of game: ‘How close can I get to the fire without getting burned?’ Delilah, a Philistine prostitute, kept pressing him about the source of his strength, and each time she got a little closer to the truth. Samson was playing with temptation by toying with her, and eventually he got burned. And we do the same thing when we say things like ‘It can’t hurt…just this one time.’ The truth is, not one of us plans to be a failure. It comes naturally – and gradually. It’s a step-by-step process, as little by little we become weakened. Our whole lives don’t fall apart in one day. Problems build up over a period of time, because we refuse to learn from our mistakes. Maybe you’re thinking, ‘But this is an area of my life I have no control over. It’s just the way I am.’ That’s the wrong answer. Here’s the right one: ‘He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength’ (Isaiah 40:29 NKJV). When Samson finally faced the truth, God broke his cycle of failure and gave him the power to do what he should do, and made him victorious. And God will do the same for you when you turn to Him!
