S – Scripture
Do not be mislead: “Bad company corrupts good character.” -I Corinthians 15:33
O – Observation
Paul was speaking to the church in Corinth. We should not be around those who are of poor Biblical moral character as that can corrupt that which God is working in us.
A – Application
When I first got saved I was about 13 yrs old, hanging around the wrong crowd, getting into trouble. My friendships were not helping me as I was striving to gain a solid foundation in my new walk with Christ. I felt led to call my then best friend and explain that I didn’t think we should hang out together anymore. It was tough decision, especially during a time of identity at that age. But God lead me through that and was my constant companion. I was also able to find other like-minded teen Christians.
We weren’t perfect, far from it. But our commonality of seeking first after Christ is what I needed and what was going to build the character in me that God needed to work on without distraction from those who would be considered bad company.
P – Prayer
Father thank you for saving me. Thank you for giving me your Holy Spirit that dwells in me as a teacher, guidance counselor, and comforter. In Jesus name, amen.
