“Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.”
(Proverbs 13:20)

I was visiting an alligator farm recently and I noticed how the alligator keeper was very cautious when moving about his reptilian friends. He was very observant of the alligators activities to guard against any unsuspecting attacks. Even though the keeper was with the alligators every day he still could not trust his company. Hanging out with the wrong crowd can be dangerous to your health because they may end up turning on you. Good friends are hard to find. “One who is righteous is a guide to his neighbor, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.”(Proverbs 12:26) We can trust devoted followers of Christ Jesus who are transparent and honest before the Lord. When we surround ourselves with these types of trustworthy friends the Lord can use them to guide our steps into his perfect will. Of course the Lord himself is our most trustworthy friend as he is the only one worthy of putting our trust in.
