“Rebuke your brother if he sins and forgive him if he is sorry. Even if he wrongs you seven times a day and each time turns again and asks forgiveness, forgive him” Luke 17:4

People love to rebuke, correct and put others “in their place.” However, in doing so, you elevate yourself above them and will find yourself in “hot water” with God.

All have sinned. No one is exempt. God forgave you when you asked. You are to forgive others in like manner.

James goes on to say in verses 8-10:

"If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, 'Love your neighbor as yourself' you are doing right. But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers. 

For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking it all."

I remember my dad saying to me: “ Show me your friends and I will tell you your future, son”

“Expel the wicked person from among you.” 1 Corinthians 5:13
Sometimes God takes people out of your life for a reason. We hang on for dear life to people that are holding us back. But God tells us, "It's time to grow and walk into that which I have for you but you’re stuck hanging with the bad crowd or in a toxic relationship."
The right people will lift you and inspire you. The wrong people will have a negative influence in your life. The people we choose to surround ourselves with are important to our spiritual health.
I remember my dad saying to me: “ Show me your friends and I will tell you your future, son” Looking back on my life and reflecting on the zig zag path that got me to this point in time, I now see with clarity, the truth in that statement. WOW!
