We are product of the people we spend time with, the things that we watch and read, the groups that we associate with. This quote applies both to the people we spend time with, and the things that we choose to watch and read.
I love to read and to learn new things that challenge my beliefs and perspectives. Reading is a great way to get outside of your own perspective and find wisdom from others; it’s another way to walk with the wise. In my mind not reading and seeking new information is the same as choosing to be a companion of fools.
It doesn’t mean you have to read to excess or try to read a book a week. Just pick one book, and walk with the wisdom that is being shared. You don’t have to agree with all of it, in fact you probably shouldn’t! But pick one book that interests you and commit to reading 15-30 minutes per day.
Seek wisdom. Seek knowledge. Seek to learn from the wise. Or you will run the risk of being one of the fools mentioned above…
