Destiny in the Kingdom of God is an adventure, not a destination. It’s an adventure of personal responsibility and personal accountability – Hebrew 6 verse 12.

 The company you keep either enhances your values or erode them – Proverbs 22 verse 24-25.

Association will never leave a man neutral, it either add something positive to you or take something good from you – Proverbs 27 verse 17. Pastor Steve Ogah uses an example of wood and iron, one will surely destroy another. It’s evidently clear that iron will destroy wood – 1 Corinthians 15 verse 33. When you keep the right company, only right things will accompany you – Genesis 13 verses 5-6 and 30 verse 27, a right company is an asset to any destiny as illustrated in the book of Psalms 1 verses 1-3 and Proverbs 13 verse 20 but wrong company are destiny red flag.

One thing you must never manage in life is relationship – The relationship you manage today will damage you tomorrow. You must puncture some association in order for them not to rupture your futre.
