Choose Your Friends Wisely - Proverbs 13:20 Bible Devotional - Christian Vlogger
For those of you who have really entered into a true Spirit-filled, fully-surrendered walk with the Lord where He is now leading your life in the direction that He will want it to go in — one of the first things that you will find happening is that God will start to prune out the people that He does not want in your life and start to bring in the people that He does want in your life. As you will see in the Scripture verses I will list below, the Bible tells us to choose our friends very carefully in this life. These verses will tell us that he who walks with wise people will become wise himself, but that he who keeps company with fools will be destroyed.

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
God uses friendship as an instrument of sanctification. It is important that all Christians carefully choose their friends. Wise Christian friends will build you up, help you, and bring wisdom. A bad friend will lead you to sin , encourage ungodly traits, and would rather see you fall than do good in life. Sometimes you have to know when friendship with another person is leading you away from the Lord. In this case, you must choose Christ or that friend.
