TOPIC: MAINTAIN THE RIGHT ASSOCIATION
Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. 1Corinthians 15:33
Just as faith comes by hearing, so do many other things gain access to our lives through what we hear and also see. Attitudes, fear, doubts, unbelief, confidence and many other traits are formed in one’s life through the communication he engages. This is why a Christian is admonished several times in the scripture on the kind of association he maintains. Your kind of association, that is, the people you are involved with, discuss with, and listen to constantly, will determine the kind of communication you engage in and this has an effect on your life.
You can’t be too wise or tough about this, so long as a man continually gets the wrong information coming into his mind, he is bound to begin to tilt towards that direction with time. So the scripture made it clear in Psalm 1:1 “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly…..” Refusing to continuously listen or participate with anything that does not conform with God’s word for your life makes you blessed.
The eyes and the ears are two major access points through which contents gets into our hearts and whatever the contents of our hearts are determines our character, actions and outcomes in life. So it is important you maintain good and godly association that inspires the right communication in order to get the right contents in your heart. The bible says in Proverbs 13:20 “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.” Choose the right association today.
FURTHER STUDY: Psalm 1:1-4. 2Corinthians 6:14
CONFESSION: Thank you dear Lord for the wisdom to choose and maintain the right association. I walk with the wise for I am also wise because Christ is made unto me wisdom. Amen
