Right now I am working on a laptop in the waiting room of an auto dealership while my car is being serviced. On the TV is a daytime courtroom show where a Judge (me looking up) – Judge Mathis – is litigating a string of horrible people who are fighting over ridiculous things, ostensibly for our entertainment.
Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”
Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels.
A troublemaker plants seeds of strife; gossip separates the best of friends.
I’m struck by how much time, energy, and wasted opportunity is being spent by the foolish people appearing on this show. Not appearing on the show – I mean their actual lives. It’s actually heartbreaking. Why do we waste life surrounding ourselves with destructive people?
By the grace of God and to my greatest ability, I will surround myself with healthy people.
Some forms of healthy are easy to spot (meth users), but some are not. Am I actively seeking financially healthy friends?
