Have you ever noticed? When kids get together - the energy level goes up in them! It doesn't matter if they are tired, grumpy, just wanting to lay around - when they get in a room with other kids that are running around - doesn't everything change? Its like someone hit a switch. Their energy goes up, they are off & running & you have to force them to leave their friends!
When you're around people who are fun & love life, & just laugh & enjoy things - dont you notice that no matter how bad a mood you are in, you end up right along with these people? You are just like those kids - your mood changes - you are instantly lighter, finding humor in things that just weren't too funny a few minutes ago - you end up feeding off of people & the energy & mood that they put out.
That got me thinking how important it is to have people to hang around that love the Lord! The people that treat others like they should, or the people that find happiness in the easy things of life - the people that encourage you & pray for you - the people that lift you up even when you are at your lowest!
I have to say - I am extremely blessed with people in my life that Love the Lord - & more importantly, let me feed off their attitudes! I can't imagine where I would be in my life without them! Thank you Lord for all the "good company" I get to be around!
"Do not be misled: Bad company corrupts good character" - 1 Corinthians 15:33
More importantly above it all - do you keep company with God himself? We need to always feed off of Him & His word.....be good company for others - encourage others character!
