Touching Lesson!

Guest Post from my dear friend Robin:

After moving out of state with our 4 children, it was time to begin school.  A few months went by and I notice our youngest daughter started coming home with some different gestures and speech.  It was not favorable!  One day following school I brought it to her attention as we sat at the diner table.  She was defensive.  I was trying to make her see that sometimes it is better to have no friends then hang with someone who’s morals and motives are questionable.  She continued to argue that this friend was not changing her. I then directed her attention to the fruit on the table, especially the peach that had started to rot.  I ask her what she thought would happen if I left that bad peach remain by all the other beautiful ones.  She said it would make them rot too and you simply take it out of the bunch.  There was a pause and she started laughing, realizing her friend was the “bad peach.” Our daughter has since made some different friends that reflect more of the fruits of the Spirit.

“Do not be misled: ‘Bad company corrupts good character.'” I Corinthians 15:33

Thank you Robin for your “touching Lesson” Candy
