Proverbs 22:24-25 ” Do not make friends with a hot-tempered man, do not associate with one easily angered, or you may learn his ways and get yourself ensnared.”

We all have one…a friend from our past that we know we shouldn’t hang around with. Someone whose attitudes, morals, and character is far from ours, but we keep telling ourselves maybe we can change them. The short answer is probably not, and instead of changing them, we’re in danger of picking up bad habits and being influenced by their sinful lifestyle. I Corinthians 15:33 puts it very well, “Don’t be misled: Bad company corrupts good character.” The path is clear – either righteousness or wickedness, life or death, and bad company can change us faster than we can ever think we’re going to change them.
