Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”

1 Corinthians 15:33

Image of many hands on a log

A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

1 Corinthians 6:13

Image of two ladies whispering a secret

A dishonest man spreads strife,
   and a whisperer separates close friends.

Proverbs 16:28

Image of homeless man beside a fire

The poor is disliked even by his neighbor,
   but the rich has many friends.

Proverbs 14:20

Image by Oziel Gómez

Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil.  For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow.

But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! 

Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone?

And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life....God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

John 3:16; Romans 5:8

God is gentle and compassionate. God knows your situation and will be compassionate to you if you reach out to Him. God sent His Son Jesus to be crucified, as the ultimate sign of His love for you.

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God..... As it is written: "None is righteous, no, not one."

Romans 3:23,10

We are all broken. The Bible calls your brokenness sin. Sin is your state of being separated from God and results in all kinds of evil actions. It also causes you to be unnecessarily anxious, and so selfish that others are hurt by your anxiety.

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord..... But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God..... For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.

Romans 6:23; John 1:12; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4

God can make you right. Salvation is a free gift, obtained only through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. No matter how hard you try, your life will never be good enough to earn eternal life. Neither will you ever be too bad to be able to believe in the Name of Jesus.
