Keep company with the wise and you will become wise. If you make friends with stupid people, you will be ruined.– Proverbs 13:20
Who you hang out with makes a difference in what you do and where you go in life. The people you spend the most time with will steer you goals, thinking, and actions. That’s why it’s so important to spend time with wise people.
This isn’t to say that you aren’t to be friendly to everyone. You shouldn’t ignore someone or be mean to them just because they aren’t a good influence. No, you’re to love that person. However, you should limit your time with people who aren’t influencing you in good ways.
Take a look at your friends today. What sort of influences are they in your life? Are they challenging you in your walk with God? Are they encouraging you to do smart things with your money? Do they call you out on a bad person to avoid dating? These types of people are the ones to spend your time with. The people that challenge you to be better.
Today, choose to make wise decisions when it comes to your friends. Limit exposure to those who drag you father from God and good decisions. Spend more time with those who draw you closer to God and to making good decisions.
