The wisdom of the Bible continues to amaze me.  The scripture speaks with a pointed simplicity.  One of those scriptures that is so piercing and to the point is in

Proverbs 22:24-25 (KJV)
24  Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go:
25  Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul.

In other words, be careful who you hang around with, because ultimately you will become like them. You can choose to make friendships with people that are angry, bitter, always criticizing and speaking doubt,


You can choose to make friendships with people that are Faithful, Loyal, Believing, Hopeful, Positive, Giving, Righteous, Encouraging, Helpful, Constructive, Confident, and people of honesty.

The fact is, you need to check where your walking, who you are listening to and check your own attitude.  Because you can measure your blessing by where you are walking and who your listening to.  Needless to say, you attitude also governs your blessings.  If change is what you want, it may need to begin with who you spend your time with.  Seek out those who make church, prayer, and seeking Godliness and righteousness a priority.
