A Victim On The Road?

The Bible warns us to be careful about the company of friends we keep (1 Cor. 15:33); that we should not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers (Ps. 1:1).

Just like on the road where another person’s mistake can land us into trouble, the mistakes and sins of the people we are yoked together with can get us into problems. Wrong friends can tempt and lead us to sin even though we might not have taken the initiative to brainstorm any mischief.

The way Psalm 1:1 puts it, it is clear that we don’t have to be wicked, sinners or mockers ourselves to get into problems. Initially, we could be the innocent guys but when we begin seeking or accepting the counsel of the wicked, the result is that we will begin walking in their ways and sitting in their council. Before we know it, we will be one of them. The rule is, “If you accept their counsel, you’ll join their council and you’ll cancel your innocence”.

The main question is: how can we travel the same road without being “forced” into “accidents” by bad drivers? The Bible says that we ought to be careful how we react to outsiders (Col. 4:5). Equally, since we are like sheep among wolves, we are advised to be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves (Matt. 10:16).
