Walk With The Wise

Proverbs 13:20 (ESV)
Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise,
    but the companion of fools will suffer harm.

Proverbs 13:20 (AMP)
He who walks [as a companion] with wise men will be wise,
But the companions of [conceited, dull-witted] fools [are fools themselves and] will experience harm.

Let’s establish this together. According to scripture, a fool is someone who says in their heart, there is no God (Psalms 14:1).

The scripture communicates many things;

·       Power of Influence
-Note that it says when you walk with the wise, you become “wise”, not “wiser”. By implication, prior to keeping company with the wise, you were unwise. Your choice of a wise companion is so powerful such that it changes your level.
-When it comes to changing levels from being wise to wiser, you need instruction.

Provers 9:9 (NLT)
Instruct the wise, and they will be even wiser. Teach the righteous, and they will learn even more.
-It will profit you to walk with the wise. Amen!

·       Power Of Choice and Outcome
-This verse communicates options and consequences; “companion of the wise which leads to being wise” and “companion of fools which leads to suffering harm”.
-We continue to say this; companionship is a choice and always will be.

·       Power of Destiny
-Your choice will eventually determine where you end.
-You have the power to determine the direction of your life.
-Do not abandon the direction of your life to another person.

·       Power of Impartiality
-The scripture says “whoever”; it is not for a select few.
-Meaning, we have equal opportunities. So we cannot base the outcome of our lives to chance, but rather to our choices.
-Choose correctly.
