Keep Good Company


Proverbs 2:20-21 (KJV): “That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of righteousness. For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it.”

COMMENTARY: In this passage, wisdom instructs us to watch and follow people who have solid reputations for goodness and uprightness; people who are planted; people with strong Godly roots and Godly fruit.

APPLICATION: Today, during a break, lunch, or after work, take a pen and paper or your device and answer these questions:

Who are your business role models and heroes?


What have they done, or what are they doing, that causes you to admire them?

Hopefully, some dynamic Christian businesspeople will appear on your list.

If the Holy Spirit reveals that you need more on-fire Christian business role models, then take the initiative to seek them out. They can appear in many places. They may be alive or already home in Glory. They may be found on the shelves of Christian bookstores or online. They may attend your church or the church down the street. They may be members of trade associations or workplace ministries. They may appear in the media. They may speak at Christian conferences and seminars. Seek them and you will find them.

Your investment of time and energy will be worth it, for in the days ahead, these people will be an inspiration and blessing to you. They will help you to stay on the right path, to dwell in the land and remain in it.

Joyfully yours,
