Who Do You Keep Company With?

On my desk I have a perpetual calendar and a little while ago, it had the following verse:

Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. Psalm 1:1 NIV

It had a small explanation and I remembered our Pastor had spoken about this late last year. This is about who you choose to keep company with and who you take notice of, perhaps even taken advice from. It could even mean an issue of ethics.

Someone I know some years ago was working with a stockbroking firm but some of the practices carried out in that office made this person feel uncomfortable. He decided that the practices didnít align with his beliefs or ethics and he left the company, even though he didnít have another job to go to. But God was good to him and placed him in a better role, using the skills heíd learnt in the former one.

In the business world it is so important that we hold firm to what we believe in and maintain a set of ethics that are right for us, as followers of Christ. There have been odd occasions when Iíve had to tell a client Ďno, I wonít do thatí to something that didnít appear to be ethically wrong to the person asking, but definitely felt that way to me. Itís important that we can look at something weíre doing and knowing that Jesus is there beside us, we donít feel uncomfortable about it. That means what we say, what we think, what we do, who we mix with and do things with.

Jesus did minister to those who needed him the most - the sinners - but he did not participate in their practices or way of life and itís important that we do the same. Not only for our own sakes, but also for those who may be watching us from a distance - we may be a witness to them without even knowing it.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
