“One who walks with wise men grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.” (Pro 13:20)
The people we spend time with will impact our lives. They will either be impacted for good, or they’ll be impacted the bad. How would you rate the people you mix with? That sounds like a very harsh judgment or question. And yes, we are called to mix with those who need to know Jesus. There is nothing wrong with this; in fact, there is a lot of good in mixing with those who have yet to come to know Him.
Yet those who are close to us and those we choose to seek advice from will impact our lives. If we want to be wise, it would be prudent to walk with the wise. Be careful to choose the company you keep wisely.
It is as important in the places we work and who we work for as well as our own teams. Those we seek counsel from, and who we are friends of, will influence who we become, its as simple as that.
Quick Prayer: Open my eyes to the wise around me. Amen.
