STOP AND THINK – A man is known by the company he keeps. (From an Aesop fable)

Aesop’s observation is a reminder of how important our relationships are. People are inclined to associate with others of similar backgrounds and interests. That can be either good or bad. In political campaigns, candidates are often judged unsuitable on the basis of their past associations. In all of life, we need to choose our friends carefully.

Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.” (1 Corinthians 15:33)
