SCRIPTURE: He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed. Proverbs 13:20.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Who you walk with determines what you can dare.
In life, the place of association, especially quality association, cannot be undermined if destiny must be fulfilled. While some people’s lives have been marred by wrong association, others are made because of quality association.
In our study today, I will give you two products of association:
i. Company determines belief and mind-set.
Proverbs 13:20 says,
He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.
Your belief is always in line with that of anyone you walk with. You begin to think like your friend. That is why you should Love everybody but never manage any relationship in terms of friendship. If a relationship is not working, don’t force it to work.
ii. Association affects action.
Who you walk with determines what you can dare. You begin to dare things like them. You begin to take similar steps with people you hang around with. So, if you hang around faith people who dare dangerous things, risky things with drastic results, you will do likewise.
Judges 7:17 says,
And he said unto them, Look on me, and do likewise: and, behold, when I come to the outside of the camp, it shall be that, as I do, so shall ye do.
You know, as an adult, if you physically take a walk with a toddler, your single step is the toddler’s many steps. And walking with a toddler limits your movement because the steps of a toddler are micro steps.
Beloved, make up your mind to make progress in this season by engaging in quality, productive association.
Remember this: Who you walk with determines what you can dare.
1. Ask God to give you quality association.
2. Choose your association carefully. Associate with people that will take you to your destiny.
PRAYER: Thank You for Your Word to me today. I ask that You give me good and quality association, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
