1 Corinthians 15:33 says” Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”
Remember when you were a teenager your mother would always say “watch the company you keep?” What did mom knew about this? Remember how you would get upset when mom said this and we would define our friends. Why did we do it? Could it be that in our hearts that mom was right but we did not want to accept the truth?
This verse is telling us to watch out because a person like this is very savvy as how they talk and persuade you and I. They are clever with their words so that they appear as innocent but yet deadly. Remember he who frequents the company of bad or corrupt men will soon be as they are. “As my mother would say birds of a feather flock together.”
Over the years I have been very selective as to who I allow in my life, yes I will talk to anyone and do my best to help them if they need help but just because I talk to you and help you doesn’t mean that I will let you in my life. Most people have asked me to explain why I do this and it’s pretty simple, I tell them I won’t let corrupt lifestyles be company in my life. Jesus himself helped the lost but He never compromised who He was, and that is why the world did not receive Him.
We only get one shot in life when it comes to our Integrity and Character so keep it pure.
