The Power of Influence

Influence is the power to positively or negatively affect people, actions or events using our personality, position or importance. Association with others affects their lives and or course it affects our lives too. What power influence has!

Proverbs says, "he that walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm" and will be destroyed. Note that influence can be positive or negative. We must understand either we will be influenced or we will influence others. We will become like our friends or our friends will become like us.

In all circumstances of our lives, there is always the positive or negative power of association and influence.

Proverbs 13:20 ESV
