“Do not be misled: ‘Bad company corrupts good character.’ Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God …”. (1 Corinthians 15:33-34, NIV)


The people we associate with (professionally and socially) have a tremendous influence on our character. It’s human nature to want to be liked and accepted by our peers. Consequently, many of of us fall into the trap of becoming followers instead of leaders. When we imitate others we often follow them into sin or destructive behavior just to feel accepted. When we turn to sin and destructive behavior we become followers of Satan.

There is a better choice!

To live in this world as a follower of Christ it is important to choose our friends and associates wisely. If we are to follow Christ’s example and live as He lived, we need to stop that sinful and destructive behavior. We need to take the “lead” so others follow us toward a meaningful life with Christ. We need to lead others toward Christ by following His example! It is up to us to display a positive example by the way we live. It is our job to gently and lovingly bring others to our Savior!

You may never know who is following you!

Work for ChristEnjoy your day, “Working for Christ!”
