GOD PAUSE: Good morning to you, my dear friend! For our minute together today, I want to ask you a question --- who is in your “inner circle?” I mean who are the people you pull in close to your heart? The ones you allow to influence and impact your life. I want you to listen to David's “inner circle” in Psalm 101:6. “My innermost circle will only be those whom I know are pure and godly. They will be the only ones I allow to minister to me.” That pretty much narrows the field, don't you think? David wanted those closest to him to be people whose hearts were in pursuit of pleasing and following the Lord. Dear Lord, may my friend and I be selective about our inner circle of friends, too. Oh how we need them in our lives! Amen and amen.
