Proverbs 13:20 (KJV); He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.
Association is a powerful force. It moulds character, aligns or destroys destinies and defines a man’s future.
In describing the power of association, the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 15:33, that bad company corrupts good morals. On the other hand, our theme scripture reveals that when you walk with the wise, you shall be wise.
The Hebrew word, “haw-lak” for walk is translated to mean among other things, “follow, be conversant with or exercise.”
How often do you follow what wise men do? If a man is a success in a certain area of his life, have you made an effort to imitate his habits?
Success, child of God, always leaves clues. So are you conversant with the mannerisms of those that have gone ahead of you in a particular field?
Do you exercise yourself in the ways of these men and women? If they are habitual readers, are you? If they value hard work, do you? If they are diligent and consistent givers, are you? If they are persistent seekers of God, what is the state of your closet?
In the arena of association, there is the wisdom of de-association, limited association and expanded association. Our theme scripture points to the wisdom of expanded association.
If you seek to grow in a specific area of your life and know someone who is thriving in it, pay the price to relate with them continually because some impartations require a daily relationship.

GOLDEN NUGGET: If you seek to grow in a specific area of your life and know someone who is thriving in it, pay the price to relate with them continually because some impartations require a daily relationship.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this Word. I understand the wisdom of association. It defines relationships in every area of my life. Thank You for opening doors to men and women that build and add value to me. For my sake, you open doors to men and women that I thought were inaccessible. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
