Family and friends, not money, are life’s greatest treasures. A friend is life’s shock absorber. Friends are the true riches of life, but choose your friendships carefully. Good character is corrupted by bad friendships. When your closest friends do not share your vision, they can become your chief critics and worst dream-killers. That is why, as you rise from one level of life to another, your intimate friendships may change. The greatness of the life of the prophet Abraham was, according to Scripture, “Abraham was a friend of God.” Who you connect your life to will either lift you up or let you down. You will become just like your heroes. That’s the good news, and the bad news. Connect your life to heroes of faith!
