Important Lesson: Be Careful of the Company you Keep.
“The Way of the Righteous and the Wicked”
1 Blessed is the man
who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
2 but his delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
3 He is like a tree
planted by streams of water
that yields its fruit in its season,
and its leaf does not wither.
In all that he does, he prospers.
4 The wicked are not so,
but are like chaff that the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;
6 for the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish.
Proverbs 13:20, ESV Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm. Related: Don’t let other people’s actions affect you.
