He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers
harm - Proverbs 12:20
As written about in the post, “Build on a Firm Foundation”, there are
consequences when we are associated with those who have turned away from God.
Instead, we should build on the firm foundation of His Word which allows us to accumulate
knowledge and understanding over time. We should also consistently pray for
advice and confidently do what is needed.
I remember one hot summer in
July, my daughter heard that a convenience store was having a special on
slurpee drinks. The Seven Eleven convenient stores were giving out free slurpees
because the date was 7-11. I went into the store and there was a crowd lined up
so I followed the crowd. Well, I got my slurpee but ended up getting the wrong
size just like everyone else and having to pay for it.
When you follow the crowd, it
doesn’t always end up like you want. Instead, let us follow the Lord because He
knows what is best for us as described in today’s video: He Knows – Jeremy Camp.
