Proverbs 13:20 - Four Types of People You Need in Your Life.
Proverbs 13:20 (ESV) Whoever walks with the
wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools
will suffer harm.
Proverbs 13:20 (MSG) Become wise by walking
with the wise; hang out with fools and watch your
life fall to pieces.
You and I can never be the kind of people
God wants us to be on our own. We were never
intended to do life that way. We all need people who
are teaching us, sharing their lives with us,
investing in us, and encouraging us to grow.
The Bible tells us, Walk with the wise
and become wise, for a companion of fools
suffers harm (Proverbs 13:20 NIV).
In fact, to be all that God calls you to
be, you need to learn from at least four kinds
Mentors. These are your coaches. Ive
had nine different mentors in my life. No one
can teach you everything you need to know. One
person will teach you in one area. Another person
will teach you about something else.
Role models. These are people who are
already doing or have already done what you want to
do. Many of the skills youve learned in your
life, youve learned by watching others.
Partners. You need co-workers and
colleagues who are in your profession, people to
support and challenge you on what God wants to do
through your life.
Friends. Friends dont necessarily help
you with your goals. Theyre just friends.
They love you no matter what you do. You can mess
up, and they still love you. A friend walks
alongside you when everyone else walks out. Thats
when you know who your true friends are.
Trying to live life solo isnt just
lonely. It works against Gods design for us.
Find your people, and make yourself
available and vulnerable to them and how God wants to
use them in your life. [Daily Devotional by Rick
