Building up doesn’t always mean being accepting of everything you do. Sometimes it can mean telling you that you’re doing something wrong and helping you correct yourself. Building up is God sending people to help tear down walls that hinder you from the destiny God has for you.
Tearing down is different in that it’s a way that is discouraging you from God’s word, deceiving that you can’t have a breakthrough, and killing your joy and hope, destroying your relationship with God through sin.
That being said, we always try to pray for discernment when it comes to having those personal and close friendships.
