“Don’t befriend angry people or associate with hot-tempered people, or you will learn to be like them and endanger your soul.” Proverbs 22:24-25 NLT
It’s contagious. What is?
The attitudes and behavior of others.
Paul spoke of this when he wrote:
“Don’t be fooled by those who say such things, for “bad company corrupts good character.””
1 Corinthians 15:33 NLT
Of course, some encounters and circumstances are out of our control, but when we do get to choose, choose to befriend people that exhibit the fruit of the Spirit.
“the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control….” Galatians 5:22-23 NLT
This week choose your associations carefully.
In His Hands,
