Gilty by Association

“…righteous man should choose his friends carefully…” and “…He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will be destroyed…” Proverbs 12:26a; 13:20 NKJV (italics and emphasis mine)

If you don’t understand a person, study his close companions (friends). You are not very far (all round) from your close companions. This is why Proverbs warns us to be careful on the choice of friends. In the business world they say your net-work dictates your net-worth and Paul drives the point home saying, “…do not be so deceived and misled! Evil companionships (communion, associations) corrupt and deprave good manners and morals and character…” 1 Cor 15:33 AMP

Be very weary of friends who are comfortable when you are at your lowest. They pat you in the back and comfort you to accept your fate; they celebrate your mediocre and settle down with you in the average Joe camp. I for one choose to camp with friends whose success intimidates me, who pull me up and push me forward to do and be more than I am comfortable…who draw me out of my comfort zone.
