All of us know that “evil companions corrupt good morals” (1 Corinthians 15:33). But many of us seem to prefer the company of bad people rather than good people. Good people will be at worship on Sunday. They will sing praise to God, pray and study together; but many had rather sit beside those who drink beer at ball games and curse the referee when “our team” is penalized. Fellowship with the world is often chosen over fellowship with good people. It is much easier to yield to the lust of the flesh when in the presence of those with low moral standards than when we are with good people with Godly standards. It is easier to lower your morals than to lift up the immoral. It is easier to drink if you are with a drunkard. It is easier to curse when in the presence of foul-mouthed people. It is easier to sin when in the presence of sinners. Hold to good people and they will make you better.
