He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.
Perhaps the most famous of all parenting phrases is “If so and so jumped off a cliff, would you do it too?” While this is completely absurd it underscores the importance of the people around us and the amount of influence they have upon us.
If you want to grow in your Christian walk there a many ways to do so. Reading devotions, studying your Bible, and praying are all valuable parts of the Christian life. Perhaps the easiest thing you can do to help your walk with God is to spend more time with other Christians.
If you don’t make it to church regularly, make it a priority to attend a service sometime in the week, even if it can’t be Sunday morning. If you attend regularly, join a small group whether it’s a Bible study, book club or men’s breakfast.
We don’t have to be doing “church” things in the fellowship of other Christians in order for this to have a positive impact on us. Conversation topics will tend to be more wholesome. Encouragement will be given. Motivation and inspiration will be shared.
We still have a responsibility to reach the world so we can’t cut ourselves off from it. But when it comes to our walk with God we will find our lives are enhanced by the more time we spend with other Christians who are serious about their walk with the Lord.
