Foolish People Breed Foolishness
Proverbs 26:4 (KJB) Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.
You likely have heard said a time or two “a man is only as good as the company he keeps.” It I true, the people that we choose to surround ourselves with can either help to spiritually make us or break us. Keeping close contact with foolish people with certainly rub their crazy, sinful, and worldly ideology off to infiltrate into our own life.
A man is either led by the firm foundations presented by God or he is led by the folly of fools who reside with deep roots in this world. This verse persuades us to not only choose not to deal with fools but to keep ourselves from becoming like them.
It is always the goal of a godly man and woman to closely identify with Christ. This includes both in his thinking and in his choice of actions. Maintaining associations with fools intimately knitted to the ways of this world will always breed foolish thinking and behavior.
