Read Proverbs 13:20 (
The type of company we keep shows us what kind of people we are or where we want to go. It’s the harsh truth. Look at the kind of friends you have or the people whose advice you listen to.

Look at the fruits of their lives.
Do they study hard?
What kind of people are they?
Are they honest, kind, good-natured, etc.?
Are they Kingdom-minded?

You want to look back years from now and have no regrets. Be intentional with the sort of company you surround yourself with.
Do these people push you forward or hold you back?

Tsotsi Friends

Did you know that Tsotsis feature in the Bible? For sure. Take a few secs to read Proverbs 1:10-19 and check out how it describes a gang in action

God needs young leaders like you to be careful and firm in the friends you choose. Or to resist the urge to join the crowd when it rages – destroying like a tornado.

“You win or lose by the way you choose, so decide to decide right!” The friends we choose make ALL the difference. Don’t give in to pressure share this with God, ask for His help now.



True Friends

Is there such a thing as a true friend/tjommie? Someone who has your back, always there for you?

Everyone needs at least one close friend. Who is that person in your life? Proverbs 17:17 speaks of a true friend who sticks by you – even against the crowd.

For many in South Africa, having a family member who is supposed to be a true friend just isn’t a reality. Put yourself in their shoes today.

If this is your reality, Jesus knows about it. Try to find someone you trust to speak about it. Find a true friend, OK?
