Proverbs 13:20
When we think of wisdom we may be inclined to think about books and formal education. However, the writer of Proverbs is clear that key to wisdom is spending time with the right people. Quite simply, if we spend time with wise people, some of their wisdom will rub off. On the other hand, spending time with fools will be sure to get us into trouble.

The book of Psalms begins on a similar note: “Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers” (Psalm 1:1).

So, who are the wise people that we need to walk with? The writer of Proverbs has a very clear answer to this; those who centre their lives on God. They may lead lives that are very different from ours, but by spending time with them we can learn so much. They have learned the wisdom of following God in their home life, workplace and leisure activities. They organise their finances in a way that is pleasing to God, and their relationships are peaceful and loving. They may not have had great educational achievements, or huge successes, but their life is in step with God.

The apostle Paul often spoke about the importance of example. He knew that his Christian friends needed to see faith being lived out. Books and sermons are great and can teach us much about the Christian life, but we all need to see it in action. Let’s make sure that we are spending time with people whose Christian lives inspire and encourage us to live more wisely.


QUESTION

Whose example do you find most helpful, and how could you gain more from them?

PRAYER

Lord God, help me to live more wisely and to seek the company of people who will help me to live more closely to you. Amen
