Proverbs 13:20: “Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with the fools and get in trouble.”

As I read this bible verse in my devotional recently, it stood out to me. I am a 13-year-old girl who really enjoys being with my friends. Friends are people who I hang out with in my free time. I ask my friends for their advice on things, and I count on my friends to be there for me. I am sure you have friends that you count on too.

This bible verse is a good reminder to choose the right friends to be around and depend on. We need to find the friend that follows Christ the same as we do or even better to bring us closer to God. We need to be careful not to be led by friends that don’t desire a closer relationship with Christ.

We should be the wise friend that leads our friends closer to Christ and be the person that our friends come to be closer with God. Today I encourage you to be the wise friend.

Dear God, I pray that we can shine your light in everything that we do, and Lord please help me to walk with the wise and not with the fools. I pray that you can lead us in the right direction and to the friends that we need to be around.  Lead someone to me who needs me to show them who you truly are. In your name we pray. Amen.
