Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him
Relationships are crucial in ministry. Woe to the man that stands alone. He is at the door steps of trouble… but many despise some basic requirements for friendship and eventually pay for it. We may quote scriptures alike, it’s not enough, that we have the same spiritual parents isn’t enough, that we live in the same city isn’t enough, that we teach along the same line isn’t enough if the following things mean nothing to you.
If ever I walk away from a relationship or I keep my distance from one, it’s usually due to something within these 10 reasons . Please Sir and Ma, these will save you from heartbreaks and headaches!!!
1) if they want to compete with you. If they see friendship as a competition rather than complimenting each other. RUN!!!
2) if friendship means I must preach for you…then run. Nothing corrupts friendships like this one here
3) if relationships mean fashion to them. Meaning it’s about who is trending in the body of Christ. If you don’t run, they will soon change you like a singlet too. Such people lack commitment and despise loyalty.
4) If they feel they are better than you and want you to lick their boot for the friendship to stay alive. In such relationships you will be down trodden and taken advantage of
5 ) if their perspective is THE ONLY TRUTH and yours is never correct. In such relationships the truth is always one sided. Even when they are wrong, they wouldn’t see it and they also will never take your advise even if you see them heading for the canyon
6 ) if they respect you but despise your spouse. This is dangerous. Take it from me. Whatever they claim they have for you is false. They can’t honor you and not honor yours
7 ) if they call mundane what you call holy. It means they lack respect for things that are sacred to you. They talk down consistently on matters that are dear to your heart.
8 ) if you can’t count on their defense for you while absent. They join the party that tear you apart. Walk away. Your mistakes are not safe here.
9 ) if their appetite for money, materialism, fame and other matters is stronger than their reasoning then RUN!!! Such a man will not die guiltless!!! I mean run Sir and Ma
10 ) Lastly if these 9 things mean nothing to them… you have found yourself trouble
