Proverbs 13:17-21

17 A wicked messenger falls into trouble,
but a trustworthy envoy brings healing.

18 Whoever disregards discipline comes to poverty and shame,
but whoever heeds correction is honored.

19 A longing fulfilled is sweet to the soul,
but fools detest turning from evil.

20 Walk with the wise and become wise,
for a companion of fools suffers harm.

21 Trouble pursues the sinner,
but the righteous are rewarded with good things.

One response to “Proverbs 13:17-21

  1. Choosing companions, influences, and friends is a key component in how we are shaped and how we become more like Jesus. Walking with those we know to be Godly and wise will palce us under the influence of Godliness and make us more like Jesus.

    If we seek instanst gratification and the fulfillment of our lusts, we can’t be seeking first His kingdom and righteousness.
