If you could steal one thing in the world, other than money, without getting caught, what would you take?
Well, at the risk of intellectual theft (pun intended), I will pull a line from Hitch spoken by Will Smith’s character.
“If you must steal, steal away from bad company.”
- “He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.” –Proverbs 13:20
- “He who keeps the law is a discerning son, but a companion of gluttons disgraces his father.” –Proverbs 28:7
- “A man who loves wisdom brings joy to his father, but a companion of prostitutes squanders his wealth.” –Proverbs 29:3
- “Do not envy wicked men, do not desire their company.” –Proverbs 24:1
So how do you know the difference between the good company and the bad? And how do you become good company?
- “He who loves a pure heart and whose speech is gracious will have the king for his friend.” –Proverbs 22:11
- “A man who has many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” –Proverbs 18:24
