Tuesday, 15th August 2023: Avoid the company of fools!

Scripture Reading: Prov 13:29 He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed

Reflections: Being able to make sensible decisions and judgments is a vital characteristic of a wise person. In contrast, foolish individuals lack judgment and act without considering the consequences. Proverbs offer advice to avoid the company of fools and instead choose to associate with the wise, highlighting the importance of selecting friends based on their intelligence. The story of David and Jonathan exemplifies the benefits of cultivating relationships with wise individuals. Jonathan helped David escape his father’s death threat, demonstrating the value of having supportive friends. By walking with wise individuals, you too, can build a strong support system and make wise decisions.
Prayer: Lord help me associate myself with people who are wise.
Confession: I avoid the company of fools.
