SCRIPTURE: Judges 2:2-3 [KJV]
"And ye shall make no league with the inhabitants of this land; ye shall throw down their altars: but ye have not obeyed my voice: why have ye done this? ... but they shall be as thorns in your sides....shall be a snare unto you. "
As God brought the children of Israel to their promised land to possess it, he warned them about the inhabitants of the land, making it clear that their continual victory won't be sure if they mingled with them. But they didn't heed to God and the rest is history.
What kind of people are your friends? Are they God-fearing Christians that will inspire and sharpen you to serve God faithfully and be victorious in life or are they people of the world who always keep your affections on fleshly desires?
Watch them! And make no league with them for they are thorns in your sides and will be a snare to you to take you off your path of endless possibilities.
