There are many voices echoing through the news and online media these days and all are seeking to influence others to their way of thinking. That is what we all strive for, right? To influence others to see things the way we do. Before we are able to influence others though, we should take careful consideration over who influences us. The Bible says, “Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.” No matter how good of a person we believe ourselves to be, if we are being influenced by the wrong people, we will end up acting as they do. Influences inform integrity. Today, take stock of whom is influencing you and what they are influencing you to do, say, and think. Remember we are called to have Jesus as the most influential person in our lives.
“Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.” – 1 Corinthians 15:33 ESV
