THE RIGHT PATH
13 Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it well, for it is your life. 14 Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evildoers. 15 Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn from it and go on your way. 16 For they cannot rest until they do evil; they are robbed of sleep till they make someone stumble. 17 They eat the bread of wickedness and drink the wine of violence.
4:13-17 Even friends can make you fall. It is difficult for people to accept the fact that friends and acquaintances may lure them into doing wrong. Young people who want to be accepted would never want to confront or criticize a friend for wrong plans or actions. Some may not be able to see how their friends’ actions could lead to trouble. While we should be accepting of others, we need a healthy skepticism about human behavior. When you feel yourself being heavily influenced, proceed with caution. Don’t let your friends cause you to fall into sin. Tyndale Life Application Study Bible NIV
This is also a warning that goes with the “don’t be unequally yoked”!!!! which means not just in marriage but in friends, business partners, or any association that is close to you, you should associate yourselves with other Christians, because inevitably if we associate with non believers on a daily basis we become dull sensed to the ways of the world and will find ourselves compromising when we should not. ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS as your Saviour and choose your friends very wisely !!
