There will be a point when it’s time to break away from your Crew, Buddies and Friends

break away from the crew

He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed (Prov 13:20)~  I guess another way of putting it…Birds of a feather flock together. Regardless of the way you word it, the outcome still means the same. One of the biggest challenges of a person’s life is peer pressure. Growing up, we were (hopefully) taught how important it was to be around the right people to avoid ending up in the wrong place. Those of us who listened to our ‘teachers’ weren’t often in the popular crowd! But I’ve learned (time and time again) that God’s plan for our progress is rarely popular (or convenient). But I’ve also learned that He blesses those who are willing to do and align with what others won’t… Him! Therefore I’m energized when I think on Romans 12:2 (be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind) because the world makes us think we’re supposed to be this way or that way and we look for people that are the way we think we are supposed to be and get in deep with them…just because everybody’s doing it doesn’t mean it’s right for you…or right at all! But in a renewed mindset I know that it’s okay to not necessarily “fit in” with the crowd. When we stand different from “the crowd” and stand for the things of God, we walk with a different crowd…we adopt a truly foundational element of walking in wisdom. With this wisdom we experience some amazing things with God. When we choose to align with the right people, it results in us ending up in the right places. It’s not only about who you know, but who you keep company with!

  1. It is usually walking with our “crew” and our “buddies” that leads us to Christ. How much sin did we all engage in order to be accepted by those people we break away from? Furthermore, even if what we engaged in wasn’t necessarily sinful and perhaps was even positive doesn’t mean it is of God or drew us closer to Him. “Now this is eternal life: that they may KNOW YOU, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent (John 17:3).” It is about knowing God through faith in Jesus Christ. All is we need to “break away” from. Good word, bro!
