"Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools suffers harm."
Proverbs 13:20 (NRSV)
PRODIGAL THOUGHTS: This verse reminds me of the old adage, "Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future." I’m not really sure who coined the phrase, but it is a simple truth. If I am permitted, we could change up the words a little and it would speak directly to those who desire to follow Jesus. "Whoever seeks to be like Jesus becomes holy, but the lover of the world suffers harm." Notice that the verse does not say those who walk with the wise never have struggles. We learn to become wise by living the example of Jesus, remaining in constant communication, and by reading the word of God. We have to maintain our surrender to God’s will. Will difficult times come? Absolutely! But those who are walking with God and learning His ways, will be able to navigate (by God’s leading) through those difficult times and will look for God’s presence throughout the struggle. Whether we are aware or not, we so desperately need our heavenly Father…and not just on Sundays. We need His presence in our lives every! single! day! Will you join in on this journey?
