The Company You Keep either Leads You to God or Away from Him

Happy Monday Saints.

On Friday, we ended with the thought that, “Walking with the right people on the right path is vital to your success.”

The Contemporary English Version of Psalm 1:1 says “GOD BLESSES THOSE PEOPLE WHO REFUSE EVIL ADVICE AND WON’T FOLLOW SINNERS OR JOIN IN SNEERING AT GOD.”

The Psalm begins with God’s blessing and then it warns us about the associations that can rob us of His blessing.

Whether or not you walk in the fullness of God’s blessing is entirely up to you. Why? Because who you walk with and associate with is YOUR CHOICE. Who you listen to and the advice you follow is completely at your discretion.

But make no mistake about it, if you follow the advice and ways of those who don’t know God, YOU forfeit His blessing.

God wants to bless you. If you read the rest of Psalm 1, you’ll find that He wants you to be fruitful and prosperous but He is restricted by the company that you keep.

The company you keep will either lead you away from God or closer to Him. The choice is yours.

Have a great day. God bless & lots’a love
