The Need for Wisdom When Choosing Friends for Life

One day a mother took five jars and collected different samples of water in each jar. She fetched flood water, tap water, river water, rain water and lake water in these jars.

The mother lined up the jars on a table in her kitchen. She then called her 21-year old daughter Michaela and explained to her something profound. 

“Michaela, you see these different samples of water? They are all referred to as WATER. However, not all qualify for what I am about to ask you to do now”. 

She then asked her daughter to assume she was thirsty, and then pick one jar with water to drink. Michaela looked carefully at the labels that her mother had put on the five jars and picked the one with tap water. Her mother was watching her as she carefully went on with her selection. After the process she then commented:

“Michaela, you saw how you carefully you looked and checked at each jar label before picking your choice of water to drink? That is exactly how careful you should be when choosing people you call friends in life. Every person has a label, be it express or implied of their behaviour and conduct. The labels on people are show their deep characters and habits. Although water remains water, but not every water is qualified for one to drink. Some is clean but the other could be infiltrated and poisonous”. 

Every person who is born on this planet earth qualifies as a human being. But not every person qualifies for your friendship. While some people are good in life, but others are dangerous! Their close companionship may land you in big trouble tomorrow, or even death!

Open your eyes wide enough to carefully read the labels and drink on the life-giving water (friendship). 

Stay blessed.
