Are You
Hanging Around
With The Wrong

“Bad company
Good Morals”

1 Corinthians 15:33

NaughtyBoy+Coin On the first day of Kindergarten, all us children were standing in line waiting to enter the classroom. Back then we all carried metal lunch boxes and also had a quarter to pay for 'milk money' — then at the ridiculously low price of 5¢ a day!

Well, one naughty boy thought it would be fun to grab a quarter from a little girl’s hand, rushed to a grate in front of our classroom door and threatened to throw the quarter into it. A couple of boys joined in, egging him on while the little girl frantically cried to get it back, and unfortunately I also stupidly decided to 'get in on the fun.' Unbeknownst to us, the principal’s office was also right by our classroom, and he bounded out towards us saying in a booming, commanding voice “What Are You Boys DOING?!?”

He then marched us all into his office, gave us a stern lecture - all of which I forgot except for his closing words “…And I NEVER want to see ANY of you boys in here AGAIN!”

Thankfully, this was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. I never again was in the principal’s office, and learned a valuable lesson to always stay away from people like that mischievous little boy.

The reality is that — “You ARE who you Associate With”— so when you associate with bad people, chances are you’ll also wind up in trouble too!

Friend, as Romans 13:13 exhorts, live a decent life for all to see, not participating in wild activities and immoral living. Instead, as 1 John 1:7 instructs:

“If we walk in the light as He (Christ) is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.”

God Bless Your Day
