Topic: Your Company, Your Accompany

Opening Scripture: 1 samuel 10:9-‘ and when they came tither to the hill, behold, a company of prophets met him; and the Spirit of God came upon him, and he prophesied among them’.

Our opening scripture is referring to saul, he found himself in the company of prophets and indeed the Spirit of the Lord that made those prophets prophesy came upon Him. Friends the company we keep matters a lot. God is so interested in the company we keep that’s why
1Corinthians 15: 33 tells us-‘be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners’; most of think we can outshine our company, we think we won’t get influenced by what they do, or their way of life, but the bible makes it explicitly clear ‘be not deceived’ as long as you are communicating and dwelling with them, your manners would soon become corrupt. Take note that every company has a spirit. It was this Spirit that made the 3 Hebrew boys stay together refusing to bow before the image set before them(Daniel 3:6), it was this same spirit of the company behind the 4 hebrew boys that made them not defile themselves with the king’s meat(daniel 1:12-15) .
Surround yourself with people that are heading the same way with you in life. it’s nearly impossible for a medical student and a student from theatre arts to prepare together for an exam, but when they pair with like minds ideas would flow, questions would be answered and they can achieve something meaningful together. No wonder amos 3:3 asks us a question – ‘can two work together except they be agreed? Certainly not, there has to be an agreement.
Friends you can’t please everybody, not everyone is going to like you even Luke 6:26 tells us-‘woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets’. The interesting things is you may not even offend them to warrant this dislike they have for you, but that shouldn’t concern you at all, men’s opinion shouldn’t determine how you live but God alone.Stop trying to please everyone.
Proverbs 13:20-‘He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed’. So the company you keep certainly would determine what would accompany you. Friends we have the Holy Spirit our perfect guide, you can rely on Him to select your company for you this way you’re sure of having the best. Remain ever blessed.

Lesson for the day- be mindful of your company – ‘the company we keep has a long way in affecting our destines’

Quote of the day:To be there for others is important but its most important you don’t leave yourself behind.
