33Do not be fooled. “Bad companions ruin good character.”34Come back to your right senses and stop your sinful ways. I declare to your shame that some of you do not know God.
Day 1 of 7
1 Corinthians 15:33-34
The old adage “Show me your company and I’ll tell you who you are,” is very often on the mark. If we hang around people with bad habits, we will inevitably begin to adopt those habits. The Bible warns us about allowing the world to influence us.
