231208 – Proverbs 13

Proverbs 13:20: “Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm.”

The people you spend your time with influence who you are going to become. 

This is one of the most commonly quoted verses in the book of Proverbs. Sometimes people paraphrase by saying, “Show me your friends, and I’ll show you your future.” Think of your five closest friends. What do you admire about each of them? Where do you think they are headed in life? What do you think they are living for? However you answer those questions is a good indication of where you are headed yourself. Your friends influence the way you talk, behave, think, and dream. 

Are you spending time with wise friends who are leading you towards God’s will for you?
