After Camp (Day 5) School Friends & Role Models

(Keep Reading: Day 4 or Day 6)

"Who You Become Is Shaped By Those Closest To You."

Don't let it just happen:
Choose your school friends & role models wisely

A big person makes you feel bigger when they're around.

I met a guy on the street who wasn't a Christian.  He told me how he had recently overcame his addiction to illegal drugs, so I asked him how he did it.  He said, "I just had to stop hanging out with certain friends and choose not to go back to them until I was strong enough to start saying, "No," and start hanging out with them in smaller doses again."

Positive Influences are GAME CHANGERS in your Christian walk.

5 Questions About Influencers:
  1. Which bad influences do you need to stop hanging out with less?
  2. Which good influences do you need to start hanging out with more?
  3. If you could be like anyone your age or older, who would that be? 
  4. How can you hang out with that role model (Question #3 Person) and try and be more like them?
  5. To become more like Jesus, follow Him and those who live like Him.
REMEMBER: Add instead of Subtract.  Build People Up Instead of Down. (Ephesians 4:29)
