TWO KEYS THAT DETERMINE WHO WE ARE

1.) Who we perceive ourselves to be
2.) Who we associate with (2 Sam. 13:3)
β€œ. . . Amnon has a friend. . .” (Prov. 13:20; 1 Cor. 5:9,11)

A.) FOUR BASIC PRINCIPLES OF SURROUNDINGS:

1.) Your surroundings (friends) will make or break you (1 Cor. 15:33, 5:11, 2 Cor. 6:17-18; 2 Jn. 1:10)
2.) You are or become like your surroundings (friends) (Ex. 23:2; Prov. 4:14)
3.) You are known by your surrounding (friends)

a.) Surround yourself with friends that have a proper
outlook on life (Prov. 24:1) (Prov. 27:17; 22:24)

4.) Your future is no greater than your surroundings (friends)
