Verse of the Day – Proverbs 13:20

“Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools suffers harm.”
Proverbs 13:20 (NRSV)

Prodigal Thoughts: Have you heard the phrase, “Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future”? It seems the interwebs are not exactly sure who this phrase is attributed to, but it still stems from this bible verse. Who are we building relationships with? Are we tending relationships that are life-promoting or are we spinning our wheels chasing relationships that are one-sided? When I was young, I enjoyed spending time with my grandparents as they just had a different perspective and pace toward life. As I grew a bit older, I enjoyed sitting down with them and hearing their stories of the way life used to be and how God had provided for them. They would brag on their Father without hesitation. Some of them may not have been the most educated, but they were very wise because they spent their time getting to know their God as they worked and played, laughed and cried, prayed and praised. We need to consider the source of all Wisdom and walk with those who bear the life-fruit of the cross.

Prayer for today: Today, I pray that we would seek out the wisdom of our Father. That He would fill us with the wisdom and knowledge that we need to live out the purpose He designed us to fulfill. I pray that we would join together as brothers and sisters in Christ to accomplish the mission at hand.

If you need prayer, please reply and I will pray for you. If you would like to talk about this verse or have questions, I’m always open for your feedback.

May the knowledge of and wisdom from our Father be a focal point of our daily lives…
