Proverbs 13:20- Walk with wise men, and thou shalt be wise, but the companion of fools shall smite for it.
Hosea 4:6- My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge, because thou has rejected knowledge I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I also will forget thy children.
The people that will have the most influence in your life are those who you choose to be in your inner circle. If you hang around five foolish friends that are not helping you grow in your walk with Christ then you are heading down a path of destruction. The bible gives us clear instructions in the book of proverbs that we are to walk with wise men so that we can gain more wisdom. Men have you ever had a friend who always gives you advice about relationships, but they can’t seem to keep a woman? Or have you ever gotten advice from your homeboy about the special lady in your life when you know he has 5 chicks on the side, and he is not committed in his relationship? Would you go to a veterinarian if you were having heart problems? Or would you go to your mechanic if your dog were sick? Both of these situations sound crazy right? Then why do we continue to reach out to our homeboys who have no spiritual wisdom? When you are walking in the council of your ungodly homies, your spiritual growth will be hampered. Some of your homeboys now are encouraging you now to have selfish ambition, seek pleasures of the flesh, and live a life not pleasing to God. Today I want to encourage us Men to examine our male friendships. God has called us to walk in the counsel of the Godly! Men we are called to be leaders, and there are people who are depending on us to lead properly. So the next time that you need advice about a spiritual matter, make sure that you are seeking Godly wisdom. Our so-called homeboys will lead us astray and down a path of destruction!
