1 Corinthians 15:33 NASB "Do not be deceived: “Bad company corrupts good morals.”"Although it was hard to do, it must be done! The trees had grown out of control, parts of them were not producing fruit any longer and needed to be cut out, so it had to be done! Today's verse gives us some great advice about the company we keep and the effect it can have on us! Working one summer, I helped trim fruit trees that were not producing good fruit, the process was hard and we had to make sure we were cutting the unproductive branches in order for the producing ones to grow stronger. We would never think about cutting off some of the company we keep, but if it causes us not to be productive, it must be done! And before we go cutting our list of friends, let's make sure we aren't the unproductive ones! Good friends will help us increase in our walk with Christ but those who cause us to go down the wrong path need to be trimmed and prayed for! peace, tom
