The Influence of Friends

Keep company with the wise and you will become wise: but a companion of fools will be destroyed. A Nicaraguan saying tells us that he who roams with wolves learns to howl. Your friends will be a positive or a negative influence.

We constantly say we are going to change our friends, but more often than not our friends change us. Paul tells us, "Do not be fooled; bad company ruins good (character and behavior)." "Bad friends will destroy you." Think about who you are spending major time with.

It's true, the influence others have in you life is great. Show me the friends you have and I'll be able to discern your moral character. Take care when you choose friends; the power of influence by association is great.
