Day 98 – Surround Yourself with Wise Men


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

Proverbs 13:20

If you surround yourself with foolish people you will be destroyed. Your home, business, image, influence will be negatively affected. Foolish people are those who walk in sin, or those who speak before they think. Foolishness in a man has to do with having no place for God in his’s heart.

Surround yourself with friends that will not destroy your life. ‘Keep company with the wise and you will become wise…’ (GNT). Make sure you search for the right kind of friends. Look for friends that will challenge you to be better in your character, work ethics, and family relationship; so you can move to the next level in life. Being selective with whom you become friends with is wise. ‘Become wise by walking with the wise; hang out with fools and watch your life fall to pieces.’ (MSG).

In your business endeavours, look out for those with proven success and ethical principles to associate with. If you desire to develop a good character, hang around with people with good character. A proverbial adage says ‘the sheep that walk with dogs will soon be feeding on faeces’. Take a quick stock of your associations right now, and may God give you the wisdom to make the necessary changes. Have a great day in Jesus’ name. Amen.
