Take care who you allow to influence your life*

Take care who you allow to influence your life for who you allow to influence your life will have some control of your life. The sphere of those who exercise influence is broader than you may think.  It includes your family and friends but also includes your enemies and those you may dislike. A person that allows his enemies to determine his or her attitude or his or her decisions allowed them, at that point to control their life. Of course, not all influence from others is undesirable. The loving influence of a father or mother can have positive results and the encouragement of a loving friend can determine a good attitude.

The choices of who you allow to influence you are yours and yours alone. Your choices will determine the paths of your life. Most of those paths can be altered and corrected with the exception of one. Who you trust to determine your eternal destiny will have an everlasting affect. The ultimate and only influencer for eternal directions is the Lord Jesus Christ because he alone holds the keys eternity.

“…choose you this day whom ye will serve…” Joshua 24:15

“How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him…” 1 Kings 18:21

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6
