Proverbs 13:20 – Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.
Those who seek wisdom from the wise will increase in wisdom and knowledge. A friend of a fool is another fool headed in harm’s way.
To be in the Word, prayerfully fearing God, surrounding myself with God fearing men to follow their walk is wise. This is in contrast to hanging with people who are foolish and wise in their own eyes where trouble lies ahead. Have seen this played out in my youth when you roll with certain guys that play the fool when you are there and by association a fool many times with consequences to bear. This reminds me of the old adage, you are known by the company you keep.
Thank you for the truth and wisdom in your Word. Let the Spirit guide me to walk with those are wise and stay away from those who are foolish. Direct my path to love you and share your love with others to bring you glory.
