Nice to meet you… or not.

Monday 6th September 2010

I really enjoy meeting new people! I get excited about making new friends and having a variety of people in my life. God did not create us to walk this journey of life on our own- we were created to connect with others. Family, friendship and relationship aren’t just “good ideas”- they’re “God ideas!”

However, I’m sure that you’d agree that not all people you meet are people you want in your life. Sometimes, you notice instantly that a certain person should be avoided. In some cases though, people may make a good impression, but eventually, their true colours show and you see them for who they really are.

Proverbs 6:17-19 reveals to us major warning signs that should prevent us from getting involved with the wrong types of people-

“Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that kill the innocent, a heart that plots evil, feet that race to do wrong, a false witness who pours out lies and a person who sows discord among brothers.”

In other words, God is warning us to be careful of people who are arrogant… who tell lies and gossip… who take advantage of others… who enjoy hurting others… who desire sin… who spread untrue rumours… and who turn others against each other.

A Girl of Wisdom loves to meet new people- but she observes them over time and looks out for warning signs. I pray that you remember today’s blog the next time you say, “Nice to meet you!” because the truth may be… that it’s not!!
