You Need Friends Who Will Help You Succeed
By Rick Warren
“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds” (Hebrews 10:24 NIV).
Real friends bring out the best in each other. They encourage and motivate one another to reach their goals. Friends who will cheer you on to success are a critical part of getting healthy.
There’s an old Zambian proverb that says, “When you run alone, you run fast. But when you run together, you run far.” The lifetime of healthy habits ahead of you is not a 50-yard dash. It is a marathon.
Marathon runners know there comes a point when you start getting a pain in your side that makes you want to give up. But if you have other people running with you, you can find the strength to continue to the finish line. The same is true in your journey to a healthier you. The only way you’ll achieve your God-given health goals is to have others involved in your life.
The Bible says, “We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other” (Romans 12:5 NLT).
