Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go: Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul. (Proverbs 22:24-25)
Today’s Morsel: When we were kids living it the country, during the winter, we would make traps to capture rabbits for food. It was a pretty easy trap to make. And by putting a little enticing bait of an onion or carrot on the front of the trap and placing the reminder inside the trap, the rabbit would go in after it and become trapped inside. People who join gangs are those who learn the ways of an angry man. They become friends with them not realizing that it will soon become a snare to their souls. Many are now trapped behind bars because they befriended angry men. Therefore, my beloved friends, make sure your friends. Make sure they are not angry men. Make sure they are not those who will cause you to lose your soul. If you make Jesus your number one friend, He’ll keep you from angry men.
Sing: I am a friend of God! I am a friend of God; He calls me friend.
Thought For Today: Making Jesus your number one friend will keep you from make friendship with an angry man.
