While we all need friends, we must be careful who we allow into our lives. We will be judged by the friends we keep, and perhaps even more importantly, we will be influenced by the friends we hang around. Scripture tells us, “ The righteous should choose his friends carefully, for the way of the wicked leads them astray.” (Proverbs 12:26)
