BE MINDFUL OF YOUR ASSOCIATION
Hello great people! I am really happy to write to you again after a while. I know you missed me (winks). I am also glad that you are being blessed by my write-ups; the feedback has been encouraging. I hope you are going to get value from what I have to share today.
Today, I am to share with you how important it is to watch the circle of people we associate with. If a person with a good character is surrounded by people with bad characters, he/she will soon be like the people that surround him/her. I remember a Yoruba adage that my grandmother said to me the last time I visited her. She said “aguntan to ba baja rin a je gbe” meaning, the sheep that makes the dog a friend would eat faeces.
This is a call to check our association. If we see ourselves as the lamb and bad friends as the dog, it is very certain that if we walk with bad friends, we would be corrupted because of peer pressure.
Let’s remember, bad association corrupt good manners. We must never keep bad friends so we would not be corrupted. We should keep good friends so we would get more value added to us as we add unto others.
See you next time and have a wonderful weekend.
