Walking with the Wise

Is the person(s) you are hanging out with simple, foolish, a scorner, or just right down wicked? We cannot expect to spend time with such people without some of their thought patterns, words, or actions becoming, in some way, our own. You will become, in some measure, like the people you choose to hang around.

So let us become a people that seek the Lord with our whole heart, and in the process surround ourselves with others that desire to grow in following Christ’s example. I am not talking about total isolation, but certainly, we must insulate ourselves from those that would in any way be a cause in us departing from the living God.

For instance, the wisdom of God is crystal clear when it instructs us to "Make no friendship with an angry man; And with a furious man thou shalt not go: Lest thou learn his ways, And get a snare to thy soul" (Proverbs 22:24–25). David, as a man after God’s own heart, separated himself from influences that would drag him down spiritually. In Psalm 101, he is forthrightly and forcefully declaring with an utmost determination his intent to have no close associations with proud, wicked, or untrustworthy souls, but to the contrary, David will cling to that which is good by guarding his heart from evil people with their evil ways.

Psalm 101:6 "Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: He that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me."
