If Bad Companions Tempt You...

I was reading Proverb 1 today and was thinking about verses 10 and 15 which the Message Bible says, "Dear friend, if bad companions tempt you, don’t go along with them...Oh, friend, don’t give them a second look;  don’t listen to them for a minute." There is some precious wisdom in these verses. Too often I hear about people who become entangled in messes because they ignored the wisdom given here. Before they know it, they're in a place they can't escape. Usually we're aware when we shouldn't be doing something. Maybe you're asked to go somewhere or do something that you don't feel good about. The wisdom is not to do it. Usually when people ask us to do something that we don't have peace about, there's a reason. Beware of bad companions! Do what the verse says and don't even give them a second look. Before you know it you could end up in a situation you'll regret. Don't forget the wisdom of 1 Corinthians 15:33, "Bad company corrupts good character". Be wise in this area :)
