AVOID EVIL ASSOCIATION

TEXT: EPHESIANS 5:6-12

MEMORY VERSE: “My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not” (PROVERBS 1:10).

A female Junior Secondary School student in a secondary school had the privilege of being brought up in a home where true Christian values were taught and practised. Her mother, the school and religious instructors, did all they could to encourage her to attain great goals in life, but she refused to listen to them and rather followed the advice of bad friends who misled her. The result of her wayward life were unwanted pregnancy, suffering and delayed academic progress. In all, she was the architect of her downfall.

Today’s text warns us against deceit from evil peers and also enjoins us to avoid friendship with them. Evil boys and girls are in our schools and neighbourhood. Make up your mind today to avoid them, so that you will not be influenced by their ungodly practices.

Are you among those causing violence and chaos in schools and in the community? If yes, repent today and receive pardon from Jesus Christ. Remember, refusal to keep away from evil association may lead to untimely death. Avoid it now and always.

QUOTE: It may lead to untimely death.

CHALLENGE: Evil communication corrupts good manners.

PRAYER: Lord, give me the courage to avoid evil peers.
