The Unguarded Heart (Part 2)
Bible Text: 1 Kings 11:1-43 | Preacher: Pastor Joe Ricchuiti | Series: 1 Kings, The Unguarded Heart
1. Believers are warned in scripture against forming deep relationships (business, marriage, etc.) with unbelievers (2 Corinthians 6:14-15).
2. The scriptures have much to say about the importance of choosing the right kinds of companions because of their influence upon our lives (Proverbs 12:26; 13:20; 1 Cor 15:33).
3. We should avoid a gossip, a hot-tempered person, a hypocrite, a prideful person, a person who’s always causing trouble, an unfaithful person, a deceptive person, a quarrelsome person.
4. We should choose a trustworthy person, a forgiving person, a fowl-weather friend; a patient person, a person at peace with themselves and others, a person with pure motives and gracious speech, a person who gives good, thoughtful advice, and an honest person who will challenge us to be better.
