The Bible often gives us the most obvious advice a person can have. If we followed it, we would be in a better world. One of the biggest struggles in the world is finding a true friend. Jesus had a true friend in Lazarus. When he died scripture says  Jesus wept.  Yet, time and time again in the bible we are warned to be on guard about those we choose to allow into our world.

We all have been betrayed a time or two by someone we thought was a friend. These scriptures below will help you discern your choices and may even help you weed out a few people. We always need the help of the divine.


Proverbs 12:26

One who is righteous is a guide to his neighbor, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.

Proverbs 13:20

Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.


Proverbs 22:24-25

Make no friendship with a man given to anger, nor go with a wrathful man, lest you learn his ways and entangle yourself in a snare.

1 Corinthians 15:33

Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.
