Topic: Association With The Best Makes The Best
SCRIPTURE: He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed. Proverbs 13:20
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Who you company with determines what accompanies you.
MESSAGE: Our anchor scripture corroborates the fact that who you company with determines what accompanies you. Who you follow determines what follows you.
Beloved, if you are interested in living at your best, associate with the best. Iron sharpens iron (Proverbs 27:17). Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego associated with each other and they made exploits in their generation.
God’s servant, Bishop David Oyedepo said ‘You don’t play your role at the best without a role model.’
Someone once said, ‘To lie down with dogs is to rise up with fleas.’ Show me the people around your life, I can tell you the quality of your destiny. To company with the best is to end as the best.
It is also important to know that you are at your best when you live each day as if it is the last.
Someone once asked John Wesley, ‘Supposing you knew you were going to die today; what would you do?’ He said, ‘I would continue my schedule as usual because my schedule is programmed to take care of any eventuality.’
When Daniel went to interpret Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, he knew that was his last chance. He was told that if the interpretation was not given, he would die with others; and when he was under such a pressure, his best came out.
Beloved, determine to associate with people of exemplary character. Wake up every day of your life with a determination not to waste your lifetime and you will live at your best.
