Am I Connected To A Spiritual Leech?
Right Connections
Be honest in your judgment and do not decide at a glance (superficially and by appearances); but judge fairly and righteously. John 7:24 Amplified Version


As we search throughout the scriptures, we can observe that the relationships which people were involved in were of grave importance. Therefore we must realize the significance of becoming associated with and connected to the right people.

Connections should be for the purpose of increase. Therefore, I should be either the enhancer or the receiver – but increase is a must. Incorrect, non-productive relationships would be considered one of those “weights which does so easily beset us” (Hebrews 12:1).

So let’s consider some of our connections. What do our: friends, acquaintances, religious and secular group memberships reveal? Are there any connections where I am currently not being increased – or increasing someone else? Are any of my connections physically or mentally exhausting? Do any of my connections appear to be synonymous to “blood sucking leeches”?

We must realize that some connections are temporary; seasonal - while others maintain the ability to perpetually be an asset to us in some fashion. When we don’t know the purpose for a relationship, nor have considered its nature – we will attempt to cling on to and transform those “passing connections” into permanent ones.

We are in the era now where everyone seems to want to “network”. Everywhere you go people are wanting to connect. This can be advantageous as well as detrimental. We must be on our guard at all times and realize that every good connection may not be a God connection.

God has given us the ability to be sociable creatures. We therefore need connections. However, we must be certain that every connection will be constructive and offer increase, integrity, stamina and above all receive a stamp of approval from the Lord.

“Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.” Proverbs 4:23

  • To God be the glory!!!

  • We know that this is a phenomenal teaching, one we find truly close to us. Because we feel that a Godly connection is one to know. Any connection won’t do, due to the fact as our lesson pointed out “Connections should be for the purpose of increase. Therefore, I should be either the enhancer or the receiver – but increase is a must.” Realizing what connection, you have with someone is vital, all connection are not meant to be a long term, even though we’ve in the past tried to make them a lifelong experience. Understanding who we are and where we are going will help us departmentalize our connections. And the question still remain are we connected to a spiritual leech and taking it a little further are we ourcelves spiritual leeches? Our we pouring into someone life to increase, are they pouring into our lives for an increase, is our iron sharpening iron, what is our connection with people that we have in our lives? Another area to consider and ever keep before us. Praise God!

  • Yes i agree i did have leeches in my circle before family and friends. It did drain me and became too much where i had to remove them. It was easier said then done but i did get there. And i have to say with my spiritual family they make up for those i had to cut loose because my spiritual family is like my family. They increase my life. They are there for me. For the circle i have now i have to say that its me and my children but God helped me see that i was becoming toxic as well by being around those certain people. Once i seen that i was less stress and drain around them it made a Huge difference. I let go finally and now here i am still free from those certain ones that was just not letting up on drainging me day in and day out some was with out me knowing it. So yes i agree you dont want leeches around your spirit its not good to be involved in that type of relationships.

  • This is a powerful passage for me to most definitely let go of some spiritual leeches that try to attached it self to me. We must have our discernment up at all times so we know who is real for you or not for you. 

  • This blessed my soul becasue so many times we are in relationships that drain us spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically.
