Do not be deceived: "Bad company ruins good morals."—1 Corinthians 15:33
Men, why does this so fool us? Yet the writer suggests we are fooled. Living in "deception" we think that bad company will not harm, damage, corrupt, or "ruin" us. How arrogant we are! We invite corrupt relationships that welcome corrupted thoughts that lead to corrupted morals. Eventually, corrupted people rub off on us. Maybe not right away, but ultimately, their behaviors, attitudes, language, and posture becomes yours. So my brother—do not be deceived.
DO THIS: Don't be deceived.
PRAYER: God, awaken my senses to corruption and help me remain uncorrupted from the world.
