proverbs {paraphrased}

proverbs 13:20

       "...walk with the wise and become wise;
associate with fools and get in trouble..."

choose to spend time with people that will encourage, enjoy, inspire and sharpen you.  invest in relationships that will build you up, not bring you down.
don't waste your days following after foolish people that revel in rebellion, nonsense, carelessness and silliness.  those kinds of friendships bring danger and aren't without their share of inevitable hardship.
