Amnon knew in his heart that it wasn't right to do what he was wanting.
BUT...then in verse 3 it says, "But Amnon had a friend...and Jonadab was a very subtil man!" I told my kids that our friends can make or break us! Whom we chose to hang out with is a very serious thing. We WILL BE Influenced by them! It could have been that if Amnon wouldn't have had a friend...that we would have never even have had to hear/read this horrible story in the Bible!
Due to his "friend" Jonadab's influence...Amnon not only COMMITTED AN HORRIBLE SIN...BUT LOST HIS LIFE TOO!
I told my children to not ever be let it said OF THEM...that, "____________ had a friend who was very subtil and led ______________ to do wrong!
Our friends can control our DESTINY!
~Since I've been back to Colombia I've received both my March and April Better Homes and Gardens magazines. YEA! That's a nice gift from parents for my birthday present...and My Best Friend Jesus got them here safely knowing how much that mean to me! (When our apt. guard handed it to me, I squealed with delight! Later when we left the office, my timid Noah asked me if I hadn't been embarrassed to squeal like that. =)~
I did add some jean this week and voila I have a fun new jean skirt! =)
I am enjoying it! Thank you, Laura!~
