What Is Following You?

Followers of one another
Words In Season:

Whether goodness and mercy will follow you or not, depends on who you follow and your dwelling place
  The King's Scribe

Bearings:
“He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed”
              Proberbs 13:20

“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in The House Of The Lord for ever”
           Psalm 23:6


Bottomline:
He did not go to any institution, be it primary, secondary or tertiary nor did he attend a Bible college but a fiery disciplinarian of an earthly father, laid a solid foundation for me very early in life on my choice of companions and friends.
I still remember his words in my heart in Ijesa dialect, literally translated “that boy is bad boy, don’t you ever keep company with him” And sincerely for over 50 years now, I checked the life of that particular boy my father warned to stay off at such a tender age, I would rather not ruffle feathers. Because you never know who and who is reading this. No prophet would have fared better than my father. His “prophecy” was too accurate.

I never knew that The Holy Word laid a solid foundation and structures regarding this phenomenon of friendship and companionship, until years later when I opened The Book and read for myself. All I kept seeing in the Bible are "evil communications corrupt good manner"...…"from such turn away…”....He that walketh with the wise shall be wise but a companion of fools shall be destroyed" etc.
The Word goes further to make a case and a point on not only the friends you keep. But also on where your dwelling place is, be it in the house of The Lord or in the congregation of the dead. And all it take to be among the congregation of the dead is to wander out of the way of understanding. According to the book of Proverbs in The Bible. And who are those that can easily influence your thoughts to that effect? Your friends and those you keep as company with.
Friendship and companionship influence your thoughts and where you go. Be it at a mariajuana joint, or in a Christian gathering. Who you company with and keep as friends, influence the decision and transmit it into action. And what follows you as regards either choice, we need not spend space and time itemizing here.
Finally brethren, we need to take radical decisions and radical steps, to walk out some people out of our lives, and walk out on some people in our lives. 
We also need to take a walk from toxic elements that are not adding value to our lives, even walk out of the presence of some negative elements, when we perceive not in them the lips of knowledge.
“Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him, the lips of knowledge” Proverbs 14:7
And where do we go finally from here?
If will cost you doing away with your current companions and friends, come to terms with your life and take inventory of all that has been following you hitherto. Make up your mind that you have had enough of one week one trouble and accept Christ The Prince of peace into your life, and let Him give you rest.
