1Corinthians 15v33 (CSB) " Do not be deceived: bad company corrupts good morals". Negative influence is stronger than positive influence unless the positive influence is backed by the Holy Spirit. Abraham is God's friend because he had a positive influence on God's life - Abraham's counsel to God in the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Friendship either impacts you or reduces you. Friendship is so spiritual because every man carries an atmosphere. Romans 16v17 (CSB); " I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who create divisions and obstacles contrary to the teaching that you learned. Avoid them".
40% of who you are is a function of what you think and hear. Whether in focus or passing, every word you hear has an impact or effect on you. The way trees follow the sun, te same way human beings follow words. Drop every friend who tells you; "You can't make it". If your friend doesn't speak life to you, drop him or her. Choose your friends, don't let your friends choose you.
20% of who you are is a function of what you say. Negative words get you to fail in times of adversary. Be careful of what you say. Always be positive no matter how difficult it may seem.
40% of who you are is a function of your companion (how far you go is determined by who you follow or you carry along. Your next level is in the function of your friendship. Don't keep a relationship simply because of your childhood memories but because of the positive influence it gives to you. Many people get stranded because they don't have reliable friends. Keep a friendship respect to impact and not remorse. As a Christian, it's not appropriate to say you've changed and become born again, yet you still keep wrong friends. The easiest way to leave bad company is to keep doing the right things. If your change is not visible nor felt by your friends, then you have not changed.
Make friends with people of great mentality and not their financial status. Financial blessing is no better than mental blessing. The type of friend you tell your marital issues to, determines the outcome of your marriage.
Five most dangerous friends you shouldn't associate with.
- Friends who receive complaints from others. 2 Samuel 15v2-6. The highest temptations are the human beings around you. If you want to live a peaceful live, avoid people who receive complaints from others because such people never give the right counselling. For God to use you to help others, you must have undergone the pains of those people and when you're helping them, you know exactly how they feel. People who make themselves available for complaints are those who haven't been through any challenge.
- Lazy and idle friends. Proverbs 19v15. God doesn't use nor call nor bless a lazy man. A lazy man is one who says he doesn't see what to do. They have the anointing to sleep and are always hungry. The highest capital available for you is your friendship and you being trustworthy. If you allow yourself to dwell with lazy people, no matter how wealthy you're, you will become poor.
- Friends who bring negative reports. John 3v25-30. Go down and let people go up. Make yourself a ladder to your friends. When God is ready to lift you up, people will go down for your uprising.
- Friends who contribute with just their mouths. Such friends don't act but only give empty promises. They do everything for you but with their mouths.
- Church politicians. 1Timothy 5v13. This set of friends know everything about the church and are not good people. They don't do what is just.

AMB LUKE MADE SALIENT POINTS ON ASH WEDNESDAY THE BEGINNING OF LENT
Each year, Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent and is always 46 days before Easter Sunday. Lent is a 40-day season (not counting Sundays) marked by repentance, fasting, reflection, and ultimately celebration. The 40-day period represents Christ’s time of temptation in the wilderness, where he fasted and where Satan tempted him. Lent asks believers to set aside a time each year for similar fasting, marking an intentional season of focus on Christ’s life, ministry, sacrifice, and resurrection.
"Therefore, as a Christian not minding your tribe nor race, not minding wether you are Pentecostal or Catholic, you are called to the service of God and humanity. This is a period of fasting and praying, the period of reconciliation between you and God, between you and your neighbor, the period for Sobber Reflection and almnesty."
"This is not a period for embezzlement, stealing, coursing, killing, kidnapping and raping.
"This season is for everyone, but for me more especially for rulers, both government rulers and traditional rulers, especially those ones that pocket the rights of citizens, those that doesn't pay their workers and pensioners, this is the time to ask God for pardon and turn a new leave for I believe what the Bible said " A labourer deserves his/her wages, whereby you keep the wages of a labourer to yourself and family its a big sin, this season is for your repentance. In the Bible David used his kingship power and slept with another man's wife, David knew he sinned against God, David wore sack clothes rolled on ashes and prayed to God for forgiveness and God forgave him. It is an example to all leaders. Our leaders have sinned against God and humanity, Nigeria is in sin, this is the season we are to put on sack clothes by Fasting and praying, almnesty etc let's pray to God for forgiveness and mercy.
As you go about today, remember this Bible verse Ecclesiastes 3:20 " Remember that you are dust and into dust you shall return".
AMBROSE NWAOGWUGWU JUST KILLED HIS POLITICAL CAREER - Amb Luke
Today, Friday 5th of February 2021, the CEO of Grace Media described the formal PDP media director AMBROSE NWAOGWUGWU as a total failure to his supporters, friends and family members.
Speaking with Gracemedia he said " I am totally disappointed at Ambrose the formal PDP media director who recently decamped from PDP to join APC the party he humiliated. I see it as a betrayal to the People's democratic Party and also a total let down on H/E Emeka Ihedioha the formal Executive Governor of imo state. Not only that he deflected from PDP to APC, he still went as far to condemn the administration of the formal Executive Governor of imo state Emeka Ihedioha. Now he is supporting the present administration of Hope Uzodimma whom he already has sabotaged and destroyed his governance. For me I don't belong to APC neither am I PDP, but to be frank with you I strongly believe that Ambrose is looking for his own selfish interest, he is indirectly seeking for appointment forgetting that the public support matters. If you go to his social media platforms you will see the great decrease of followers just because he choose to masticate his vomit. Indeed he has no qualities of a good leader, knowing fully well the situation of things in imo state whereby criticism is on high rate on the present administration, he disregarded his supporters and moved to support the administration of his so called Court Governor. He now addresses him as the best governor ever in imo state, what a shame. Keep on mocking yourself."
He further Said
" Those that says the truth are always been tackled, just the way he tackled Nonsonkwa saying he bags award of false rumour. The Nonsonkwa we all know is a man of truth, his a majority speaker. So therefore there is nothing you say against him that would be seen as truth."
The CEO of Grace Media further advised the administration of Hope Uzodimma to clear all their debts in imo state and stop chasing shadows.
AIR FORCE OFFICERS ALLEGEDLY SHOOT LECTURER DEAD IN IMO ‘FOR NOT IDENTIFYING HIMSELF’
Nigerian Air Force officers attached to the 211 Regiment of the NAF Base, Neze, Imo State, have been accused of shooting dead a Computer Science lecturer of the Federal Polytechnic, Nekede in Imo State.
According to reports, Okonye Steve Nduka was killed at about 7 p.m on the 25th of January, 2021 at Naze area of Owerri.
Comrade Okonye was allegedly gunned down by the trigger happy men along with an ex-student of same Polytechnic as they were on their way back from a church programme.
The Zonal secretariat of ASUP ZONE D has condemned the killing of Comrade Okonye, calling for justice for the victims.
A statement released via the official website of ASUP Nigeria reads:
“The killing of our member is a brutal reminder of the stained reputation of security agents in the country, particularly in the area of extra judicial killings.
“The reports of a possible case of mistaken identity as the reason for the shooting represent watery and unacceptable excuses as Comrade Okonye and the other occupants of his vehicle were unarmed and never resisted arrest when the trigger happy men pointed guns at them.
“The killing of Comrade Okonye, a budding academic by these men cannot be swept under the carpet as the Polytechnic community, as well as the people of Ukwuani in Delta State have been robbed of the contributions of this young comrade to society particularly in his area of professional competence.
“The Union is therefore calling on the government to institute a full scale “no holds barred” investigation into the killing of our comrade and his friend through an investigative panel, the unveiling of these gunmen and their prosecution to serve as deterrent to others who are in the business of molesting and killing harmless unarmed citizens for fun.
“This shall also serve to save the society from the continued menace of the unprofessionalism of these men who have turned same citizens they are paid to protect, to hunting games.
“The Union is equally demanding for compensation to the families of our fallen comrade and his friend as the families have been deprived of their bread winners in such avoidable and unacceptable circumstance.
“Our Union is also calling for the relocation of the 211 REGIMENT GROUP, Air Force base currently located close to the institution as the excesses of the soldiers have been a constant source of conflict between the soldiers and the Polytechnic community. We are convinced that the current location of the base and its proximity to the Polytechnic community is an error that must be corrected to forestall future killings as the soldiers have on several occasions been reported to have overstepped their bounds by molesting citizens without provocation.
“Our Union will continue to demand for justice to be served these errant gunmen reportedly operating as officers of the Nigerian Airforce from the 211 Regiment Group, as the safety of lives and property of our members can no longer be guaranteed with such armed men operating freely within the community.”
