Davidisms: Show Me Your Friends and I'll Show You Your Future

“Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm” (Proverbs 13:20).

“Social capital” is a term used today to describe the value of social networks. It’s becoming increasingly important as people realize that when you surround yourself with wise people, they point you in the direction of success.

It’s why the saying is true: Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future!

Most parents say to their children, “Choose your friends wisely.” This tried-and-true instruction is biblically rooted. “Bad company ruins good morals” (1 Corinthians 15:33).

Yes, as Christians we are called to be salt and light to the world (Matthew 5:13-16). But we are also cautioned to be careful in our friendships and business relationships.

Why? Because if you spend a lot of time with immoral people, you may find yourself becoming more comfortable with their godless ideas and habits.

But when you surround yourself with wise people who possess good and Godly morals, you’ll most likely find yourself walking down the path of prosperity and success.

Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future. It’s wisdom for the ages.
