Proverbs 13:20

"Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm." NIV

"He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed." KJV

Our moral character will always be a reflection of the company we keep. The way we talk is one of the first ways others can tell the kinds of people with whom we associate. Is our speech clean, uplifting, and positive or is it sprinkled with negative, unclean, degrading words that would make Christ flinch? Our attitude shows whether we speak or not. Remember, body language speaks volumes. Our natural way is to be attracted to people with whom we feel comfortable, or who make us feel better about ourselves. These are not always the best people with whom to associate, for they may be fools (weak minded, lacking good judgment, followers). The true Christian seeks to associate with those who are wise in the things of God and wise to the ways of the world. They are those who help us steer away from foolish things that will drag us down, and help us stay on the path that makes us wise. Who do we spend our time with as companions and friends? We will speak and act like them.

Heavenly Father, we ask that You would show us where we are in regards to our friends and associates. Help us to put ourselves in the company of wise and Godly people and stay distanced from fools and morally impaired people. Give us hunger to be more Christlike and not worldly. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
