21+Bible Verses About Choosing Friends(KJV)

We are unable to live alone here. We need someone with whom we can communicate our ideas and aspirations. We, therefore, need people with whom we can share all of our intentions and secrets. If one of our friends betrays us, we feel upset and are put in a tough position.

Because friends are so important to us in our life, we must choose them carefully. We must determine which people to refer to as friends. We should always be encouraged by friends to follow God’s directions. If we discover that our friends are not walking with God, we must cut ties with them in order to preserve our souls.

To learn how to choose friends, let’s read and reflect on the following  Bible Verses.
