If a wise person goes to court with a fool, the fool rages and scoffs, and there is no peace. Proverbs 29:9
Associations in life are important. If you associate with unreliable, undependable, and disloyal people, you will feel the effects of that association.
If however, you surround yourself with dependable, trustworthy, and good people, you will be a better person because of it. Your stress (and health issues related to it) will be low. Your outlook will be positive. You will be able to live at peace. You won’t regret your decision.
Are there unwise and unreliable people in your life right that you do not have to associate with (family members don’t count)? Of course we all do and say foolish things from time to time but I’m referring to consistency in the person’s reliability and dependability.
Pray that the Lord will bring wise people into your life and that He would help you to dissociate with those who bring you down and discourage you consistently.
