"Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers." Psalm 1:1


Our lives are constantly being influenced - through advertisements, media and even the people in our lives. With so many areas of influence in our lives, we need to make sure we are being influenced by the right ones if we hope to get the most out of it.

As believers in Jesus Christ, we are challenged to rub shoulders with everyone. We should constantly connect with people far away from God. But our closest relationships - those with the greatest influence - should have the same connection to Christ that we do.

What, or who, has the greatest influence in your life? Do they share the same beliefs about Jesus that you have?


Pray for wisdom and discernment when it comes to your relationships. Ask God to reveal those people who should be your greatest influences.


To find the right kind of influences in your life, you have to be connected to a local church. Contact the church to get involved today—don’t just show up—and discover a life of true purpose and passion!
