People in your Life.

– Hey everybody, welcome to the 180, good morning. I hope your day’s off to a great start. I was thinking about something a buddy said to me a while back, powerful words I’ll never forget ’em. He’s a close friend of mine, he said, “Jeff, you know when God wants to bless you,” “He puts people in your life.” “But when the enemy wants to take you down,” “He puts people in your life.” Powerful. It really makes you think about who you have in your life. Well the other days I was sittin with about seven guys, we were sittin around a table just laughing and really enjoying each other’s friendship. And then the next morning when I woke up, I couldn’t help but feel completely blessed. These are just amazing guys. And as I thought about these guys, I couldn’t help but think about three things. Number one: they all know Jesus. Number two: for the most part, they resemble his character. Not always, they’re not perfect. But they do, they resemble Jesus’s character. And number three: they lift me up. They encourage me, they challenge me, and they love me. And that is huge. That is a blessing. In Proverbs 13:20 it says, “Whoever walks with the wise will become wise.” “But the companion of fools will suffer harm.” I wanna ask you, who do you have walking with you in your life? Do they know Jesus? Do they resemble his character? And do they lift you up? Because those three things influence the direction you’re going. I hope they do. I pray they do. And I pray that you will continue to grow in your faith and surround yourself with people who know Jesus. Thanks for being a part of the 180, everybody. We’ll see ya next time. Have a great day.
