Walk with the wise

I'm a slow walker, but I never walk back.  -Abraham Lincoln

I’m currently training for a marathon with a guy who always stays a step ahead of me.  If I have learned anything about running, it’s that you have to train with people that are faster than you are.  If you want to be better then you train with the best.  This concept also applies to wisdom.  If you want to grow wiser then don’t follow fools.  Even if you’re already pretty wise, hangout with people you consider wiser than you.  God puts wise people in our lives so that they’ll take us further than we can imagine.    

Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in trouble (Proverbs 13:20, NLT).
