“Make no friendship with a man given to anger, nor go with a wrathful man,
lest you learn his ways and entangle yourself in a snare.”
When I read this, I feel that many proverbs inspired motivational speaking. When I read this particular one, I think of the Jim Rohn quote:
“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”
It makes me step back and think. With whom do I spend the most time? Are those people the same this year as they were last year? Am I going in the right direction?
People around us affect us for good or bad. As I feel myself getting closer to God, I realize how far away I was just a year ago. I’m thankful for the people I have in my life. I’m also wondering how I affect those who allow me in their lives. I want to work on becoming someone people want to be around.
I love Proverbs, and I know others in the speaking world do as well. Do you? Why do you think that is?
