Who do we keep company with? Who are the people we call our friends? It is an important if we are to live the life of faith in God, trusting Him and to grow into the image of His Son Jesus Christ.
“He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed. Evil pursueth sinners: but to the righteous good shall be repayed.” Proverbs 13:20-21 (KJV)
How many times have parents guarded the people their children hang out with? Good parents will keep watch.
“Evil communications corrupt good manners” 1 Corinthians 15:33
“Communications” in the KJV can be interpreted “companionship”
All Christians need to learn and know that there is much to be said about who you keep company with. You can be known by who your friends and who your enemies are.
The people we run with, hang out with can be a detriment or a blessing in our lives. In any case as a child of God we need to be the thermostat that sets the temperature; and not a thermometer that only registers the temperature.
