King Solomon has some wisdom for me. It is about “bad” people. Note that it isn’t about evil people which is an entirely different story.
- How does it start? It starts with envy. It is that simple. Maybe it is their wealth or maybe it is their popularity. It is very subtle.
- What is Gods’ goal for me? God wants me to hang our with good people, his chosen people. Jesus is clear in his mission.
- Why is God’s goal important? If I hang out with bad people, their influence will rub off on me. They are nothing but trouble.
- How could things be worse? There are bad people and there are evil people. Evil people are destined for God’s justice. Elsewhere in Proverbs we read that “Good people celebrate when justice triumphs, but for the workers of evil it’s a bad day.” (Proverbs 21:15)
“Don’t envy bad people;
don’t even want to be around them.
All they think about is causing a disturbance;
all they talk about is making trouble.” ~King Solomon
