He who walks with wise men will be wise, but companions of fools will be destroyed. - Proverbs 13:20
A man who wanted to buy a donkey went to the market, and, coming across a donkey on sale, arranged with the owner that he should be allowed to take him home on trial to see what he was like.
When he reached home, he put the donkey into his stable along with the other donkeys he had.
The newcomer took a look round, and immediately went and chose a place next to the laziest and greediest donkey in the stable.
When the master saw this he took hold of him at once, and led him off and handed him over to his owner again.
The owner was really surprised to see him back so soon, and asked, "Why, do you mean to say you have tested him already?"
The man replied, "I don't want to put him through any more tests, I could see what sort of donkey he is from the companion he chose for himself."
The question to you today is, 'what sort of donkey are you?' Are you lazy or hardworking?
Just take a good look at the kind of places you go and the kind of friends you get attracted to and you will determine the kind of person you are.
Do you feel comfortable in the company of lazy gossipers? If you always feel the pull to hang around people with very questionable values, you may have to re-examine your own values.
The problem is not in the people you feel attracted to; rather, it is in your own character. The company you keep is a reflection of the values you have.
Prayer: Lord, draw me closer to the kind of people who will inspire and challenge me to be holy and productive.
Scriptural Reading: Proverbs 13:20
