He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.
Adversity pursues sinners, but the righteous will be rewarded with prosperity.
A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, and the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous. Proverbs 13:20-22
Who is in your fav five… your closest circle of friendships. Show me your friends and I will show you your future. Who we associate with can have a big impact on who we become. In these three couplets the wise, righteous and good man is contrasted with the foolish sinner. For the wise, we have the promise of becoming wiser still. For the righteous the benefits are too numerous to list. And the good man will positively affect nearly everyone around him and others for generations (his children’s children).
Am I walking with the wise or am I a companion of fools?
Lord, thank you for the people You have placed in my life. Please use my life to be a blessing to many.
