Matthew 15:14 - If the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch.
When you start pursuing God's vision for your life, sometines you have to change who your close friends are because you're not speaking the same language anymore.
Priority requires that there are people and places that you are going to have to disassociate yourself from if you're going to make it to your dream.
Some people say that it doesn't really matter with whom they associate, that they wouldn't want to hurt anybody by disassociating from them. Yet Jesus was telling us not to be foolish by following those who are spiritually blind.
Some people literally sacrifice their dreams and their lives because they are afraid of having conflict and disagreement with others.
I CHOOSE PEOPLE TO ASSOCIATE WITH WHO WANT ME TO GO WHERE I WANT TO GO. I LET THEM BE MY ENCOURAGEMENT.
I IGNORE THE CRITICS AND KEEP ON ACTING IN ACCORDANCE WITH MY VISION.
