I don’t necessarily consider myself a follower, but there are time I find myself changing without realizing it. I especially notice this in my speech. Many times my wife would say, “You we’re with (insert name) today, huh?” Or she would ask, “You had a lesson with (insert name) today. Didn’t you?” She could tell because for some reason I would start speaking with a few more bro’s in my sentences. Or for some reason I would say something in a Spanish or Filipino accent without trying. The funny thing is, I’m actually really terrible at accents when I try to speak with one! So apparently the only time I’m good at them is when they sneak in naturally.
Choose to spend time with people that elevate your walk with the Lord. Take this moment to ask yourself, “Are my current influences going to lead you to destruction or wisdom?” Today might be the day to start looking for new friends.
