Proverbs 13:20 He who walks with the wise grows wise but a companion of fools suffers harm.
The key here is the definition of wisdom. See Psalm 111:10; Proverbs 11:2; Romans 1:21-23. Reflect on the fact that there is no finite or human elements that are used to describe wisdom. Wisdom is the knowledge of the Lord. Therefore, when we seek out friends, consider a person’s fear of God, their knowledge of the Word, and the humility of their walk with Christ.
