The ways of right-living people glow with light; the longer they live, the brighter they shine. But the road of wrongdoing gets darker and darker– travelers can’t see a thing; they fall flat on their faces. Dear friend, listen well to my words; tune your ears to my voice. Keep my message in plain view at all times. Concentrate! Learn it by heart! Proverbs 4:18-21
Most of us can relate to the notion of going along with the crowd. Doing what we do to fit in. The Bible is clear if we mix in the wrong circles we are not going to live right. If our goal is right living we need to start hanging around with people who are living right. We need to take time to learn what God intends for our lives and put our efforts into making it our life-long goal.
James 1:5-6 says “If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it. Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought. People who “worry their prayers” are like wind-whipped waves.”
None of us stand alone in the recovery process. We all need others to walk with us and we all need Jesus. We need to make sure the people we walk with are on the right path and in relationship with Him.
