Be Mindful of Your Connections

Be Mindful of Your Connections
A person’s acquaintances and connections say a lot about the person. The company that you keep would influence you either positively or negatively. One Yoruba adage says that "a sheep that befriends a dog would eat an unsanitary food." As the old saying goes: "Show me your friends and I will tell you who you are." The bible says,  (Prov 13:20 NIV) He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm. In view of the aforementioned idea, reexamine your relationships to ascertain if you are in the right circle of friends. The Bible says: (1 Cor 15:33 NIV) Do not be misled: "Bad company corrupts good character." A word is sufficient for the wise.
