In Good Company

Your inner circle.

Your clique.

Your possé.

Your squad.

Your guys.

Your best friends.

We have different ways of addressing our best friends. It’s a nice thing really, to have a select group of people who you can do life with. However I’m going to ask you a question that you should think about carefully before answering.

Do you have Godly community? Are you in good company?

Having people you refer to as best friends does not always translate into having godly community. I came across the term ‘Godly community’ when listening to a sermon by Pst. Michael Todd in his ‘Inner Circle’ series (please check it out on YouTube if you have the time, it will bless you). I took some time to reflect on it, and I believe every believer should. It’s not just about having people you talk with and walk around with. Do your friends edify you? Do you help each other walk in purpose? Are you just surrounded by ‘yes men’, or do you have people that are not afraid to call you out on something you did wrong, and still be friends after the argument? Do you tell your friends something and worry like you told the whole world? Are they friends that you can trust to pray for you and with you? Are they truly happy when you succeed? Do you and your friends encourage each other to be closer to God?

Five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight; your enemies shall fall by the sword before you.
Leviticus 26:8 NKJV

Two are better than one, Because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, For he has no one to help him up. Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
Ecclesiastes 4:9‭-‬10‭, ‬12 NKJV

The presence of a friendship is one thing, the quality of that friendship is another. I believe that we have to really guard our hearts when it comes to the people we allow get close to us, because they deposit things in us and we in them alike. Please be sure that you’re in good company.

Thank you for reading.

This struck me, the quality of the friendship is more important than the quantity of friends that you have. 5 good friends better than a hundred not so good friends.

Fantastic read, as usual!
