“He who walks with wise men will be wise, But the companion of fools will be destroyed.”Proverbs 13:20 NKJV
Those that we have in our inner circle is key to us walking in the plans and promises of God for us. If our most intimate friendships are with those who chase after the lust of this world it will impact our lives and pull us down.
But if our most intimate friendships and our inner circle is filled with those who pursue God with all their heart than it will be very beneficial to us. Many times we underestimate the impact that relationships have on our lives.
We are not superhuman and destructive relationships can destroy us. We need to be wise in who we have in our inner circle. Bad company corrupts good character. The life God has given us is a gift. Let us use wisdom with who we build relationships with.
This doesn’t mean we should lock ourselves away from the world and those who are lost. It simply means that in our inner circle we should surround ourselves with those who pursue the Lord with their whole heart. Every relationship we have will impact the whole of our lives.
