When I attended the Momentum 2014 Conference last week in Columbus, Ohio, “Carol’s Daughter” founder, Lisa Price referenced T. D. Jakes sermon on “3 Types of People in Your Life.” I had the opportunity to watch this 8 minute video. Bishop Jakes called them, ” Confidants, constituents, and comrades.” The confidants are people who are for you. Unconditionally, your confidants weep with you, rejoice with you, and are happy for you….Confidants will make sure that you reach your destiny. Your constituents are for what you are for; while your comrades are against what you are against. Jakes cautions us to not confuse the groups, because constituents and comrades will leave you! If you have two or three confidants in your lifetime, you are blessed! I thank God for giving me the wisdom to discern that a diamond is coal first! There have been times that I have been wrong and erroneously classified who was who in my life! It happens to the best of us! I am not technologically savvy enough to embed this video for your viewing, but a google of same is well worth the watch! It’s important to know who’s who in your life!
