Walking wisely

Thus you will walk in the ways of good men and keep to the paths of the righteous. Proverbs 2:20
Walking wisely means you keep company with those who love and obey Christ. They are your influencers because their values reflect the route you want to take in life. There is an alignment of purpose with people who pray together on behalf of the greater good of God’s kingdom and its advancement. So in college, walk with the crowd who is all about character building, service to others, studies, love for the Lord, and obedience to His commands.
At work, prayerfully partner with those who are principled in their business philosophy and practices. Others may have less skill and experience, but you can trust their heart to do what they say they will do. Moreover, do not negotiate with mediocre living as it is distasteful in the mouth of our Lord. Instead, walk with those who raise you to righteous living that is par with God's standards.
Of course, you are to reach out and care for sinners with the purpose of loving them to the Lord. God has placed you in the life of unbelievers to influence them toward heaven. Perhaps one day they will thank you for your patience and prayers. Walking wisely means you learn well by being with those who aspire for intimacy with the Lord. You walk with the ones who obey the One.
Furthermore, your family may need you to slow down because you have run so far ahead they are unable to keep up and benefit from your presence. Walk with your sons and daughters while you can. Your leadership at work will advance in significance when your team walks with you in focus. Above all else, walk with the Lord, and He will give you wisdom and insight into whom to walk with and where.
