Is it ok to not want to fellowship with certain people?

I was recently invited to a men’s accountability group by some guys in my church. We are all single guys in our 20’s. I personally have kept my distance from them because there are other people I would rather fellowship with than them. One tried to guilt and shame me for not going to a Saturday morning prayer group. The other has a haughty attitude most of the time and has a job that I feel preys in less fortunate people.

I read Luke 6 today and was moved to contemplate these things. I wouldn’t call them my enemies, but I think Luke 6 calls us to do good to all people, especially the ones that are hard to love.

For one, I don’t think I would be able to open up to these guys in an accountability group. But more than that, I’ve been wrestling with how I should interact with them and maybe some of the harsh feelings I have towards them. We go to a pretty big church and so I’ve been able to avoid them, but that doesn’t seem like the thing God calls us to.

Any thoughts or advice would be great. Thanks.
