1 Corinthians 15:33

"Do not be misled: 'Bad company corrupts good character." NIV

"Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners." KJV

How can we stay away from "bad company," those who are ungodly, when we have to work every with them and live next door to them? How can we keep ourselves from being affected and taking on their bad characteristics? If we are put in positions that cause us to have to be around ungodly people, God will protect us and discipline us to pray, read the Word, and stay close to Him. If we choose to be around ungodly people, it won't be long before we begin to show mannerisms, speech, and behaviors that are like theirs, ungodly and corrupted.

Heavenly Father, forgive us if we have chosen to spend time around ungodly people because that is what we have wanted to do. Help us when we are around the ungodly because they are family or co-workers or neighbors. Give us sensitivity to the Holy Spirit so that we will be able to stand strong in the holiness of Your kingdom. We pray this in Jesus' name, Amen.

This is so true. Evil companionship corrupts good morals. The picture is a good illustration.
Thank you for your nice comment on the new Spiritual Sundays Facebook page. I wish I had thought of the Facebook page a long time ago. I think it's a good thing.
