Proverbs 13:20 Raising Your Average

“Walk with the wise and you become wise, but the companion of fools will be destroyed.” -Proverbs 13:20

Jim Rohn said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” If you look around at the people you spend your time with, do they elevate you or bring you down? Do they challenge you to grow in wisdom or lead you down a path of destruction?

This is a challenge I present to my son: Consider carefully who choose to spend your time with. It is also a challenge I present to myself. Who are the ones I talk to the most on the phone? Who are the ones at work that I can spend time with who will make me a better person?

If you feel like your “average” is a little low, seek out the ones who can raise it. Walk with the wise and become wise.

Walk with the wise and you become wise, but the companion of fools fares badly. -Proverbs 13:20

You are the company you keep.


The Virtue of Prudence

There is an unlimited wealth in having wisdom that goes beyond money, possessions, and social status. We can all grow in wisdom if we choose to pursue it. King Solomon regarded as one of the wisest to have lived said: Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gets understanding, for the gain of it is better than gain from silver, and its profit better than gold. –Proverbs 3:13-14

Can you hear the call of wisdom? It is there, we only have to listen.
