THE RIGHT COMPANY: A PATHWAY TO EXCELLENCE
By DIGC25 January 2021
The kind of people you choose to be around you automatically determines the kind of life you have chosen to live.
SCRIPTURE: Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. Proverbs 27:17.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To arrive at excellence, quality association is necessary.
Previously, we saw three pathways to excellence and prominence. We saw that to be excellent in life, one must make the right decision, pay attention to details and possess quality information.
Today, I want to add that another pathway to prominence in life is keeping the right company.
It is very important to know that the kind of company you keep determines the level of quality you will experience in life. There are quality people whose destinies have been corrupted by the wrong company. Also, there are people whose destinies were corrected by associating with the right company. Your choice of friends, automatically defines your choice of destiny. The kind of people you choose to be around you automatically determines the kind of life you have chosen to live.
Your association determines your destination; your association also affects your distinction. You can’t keep the company of vultures and expect to soar like the eagle. As fire begets fire, iron sharpens iron, and excellence begets excellence. Company defines quality. If you show me a person close to you, I will show you the quality of person you are. Company determines quality. Lions don’t move with hyenas; Eagles don’t move with vultures because quality provokes quality.
Your friends affect your future; your choice of company determines your choice of quality.
Beloved, to arrive at excellence, quality association is necessary.
If you manage people, they would damage you; so association is not for management, association is for advancement.
Remember this: To arrive at excellence, quality association is necessary.
- Don’t manage people; never entertain the wrong association.
- Associate with excellent people to be excellent; associate with quality people to live a quality life.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask for the grace to choose the right association in order to arrive at the right destination in Jesus’ Name.
