Devotion

He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.

Proverbs 13:20

Who are you walking with? Are your closest friends walking down a spiritual path?

We are called to be a light to those who don’t believe in Jesus. Some people think this means we should walk with unbelievers to show them we care.

I agree, to a point. Of course we should show everyone Jesus’ love, but we cannot tread down a path of unrighteousness and stay pure before God.

While we must not condemn unbelievers for what they do, we also cannot condone sinful behavior. If we’re walking with God, then we will be strong enough to come beside them, turn them gently and guide them in a different path.

Dear Lord, give us your love for those who don’t know you. Help us to look past their behavior and into their souls. And give us the strength to turn them to You and away from sin without falling into sin ourselves. In Jesus’ name, amen.
