“As iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens [and influences] another [through discussion].
PROVERBS 27:17 AMP”
I was somewhere yesterday having a busy time reading the Karen Kingsbury’s book from the Library on my phone.
There were three young guys sitting some distance away from me. Their discussions synced together but it was obviously irritating to me.
One of the guys was talking about the many ladies that he has ran over. Some that he has cheated and those that have cheated him before he finally impregnated one of them.
The other two guys were also relating their lustful desires and how normal it is to have affairs with young ladies and end up not marrying them.
On the hand, they tooth- picked how comfortable some ladies were indulging in the act even when they know that they may end up not being married.
At least, for that minutes, I felt bad for those ladies whose blatant ignorance and action made them the subject of the formula. No! I mean the subject of discussion.
While they were busy with all forms of their dirty and flirty words, I scrambled for my ear piece to listen to the musics on my laptop so as to block away the interference of their discussion.
My heart is so precious to be pollutted. It is my duty to control what enters my heart at least if I couldn’t stop their discussion.
Yeah! This is one side of the story. Why wasn’t I comfortable with what they were saying? They are not the right iron for my life’s purpose.
What they have is not a sharpening iron! It is a blunting one. The blunt edge is sharp enough to rust my mind. So, I switched to what can sharpen my mind.
This scripture presents a valid truth. Your company determines your choice of words, the centre of your discussion and basically your actions or what you do.
Speaking with a young guy recently, he was so bold without any apology to tell me that premarital sex is a normal thing.
And when I checked the circle of his friends, I discovered that they aren’t different either. His mind is blunt already that only the Gospel can sharpen it.
People get better or otherwise on the basis of who they journey with or listen to. Well, may be I should say that you can’t be better than the integrity of who you listen to!
Nobody gets better in life because s/he has sufficient wings to fly by him/herself.
There is always a point in our life whereby we come in contact with certain men whose words or life’s pursuit speak to the dormant potentials in us causing a spark from within.
This singular act revolutionalized our lives and make us better.
If you will go far in life, you must carefully choose those you company with and those that you listen to.
Any man whose company with you does not add value to your life must either live you at a mediocre equilibrium or cause a retrogression to your life.
Such a relationship is harmful for your survival and living.
You must contact those that will cause a spark in you which will give births to a generational impact.
Any relationship that doesn’t improve you is satanic!
Any relationship that milks you out to reduce you to nothing is a cheat.
Those friends whose words dampen your spirit are not the right iron!
Don’t marry somebody out of sympathy. Marry because it will be a good company for your growth in all spheres.
Consider this story lines and decide on those that will be your co-travellers in life.
Truly truly I say unto you, Wrong people in your boat, can sink you!
You deserve a godly, productive and sound people to be framed into the reality of why you are here!
These are the right tools for your life’s purpose! Get them and you life will get better.
