“Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and you get into trouble.” Proverbs 13:20

Tama ang kasabihan: “If you tell me who your friends are, I will tell you who you are.” Maraming napapahamak minsan ay hindi sila mismo ang may kasalanan kundi ang mga kaibigan nila. Sinasabi rin ng Bible na: “bad friendships corrupt good character.” 1 Corinthians 15:33. Kaya never underestimate ang mga tao na hinahayaan mong maging bahagi ng iyong buhay dahil hindi mo alam ang peligro at sakit sa ulo ibibigay nila sa iyo. Some of them will soon demand your precious time, talent and treasures simply because they you allow them into your life. Wag ka lang basta accept ng accept ng friends kahit sa mga social medias dahil once na naging friend mo na yan, mahirap mo na silang i-unfriend.

On the other hand, having good friends is also one the best things that we all need especially these days where many uncertainties occur. The Bible also say:  A friend nearby is better than relatives far away. -Proverbs 27:10

Ang susi to being wise or mabuting tao ay ang pagkakaroon ng mga kaibigan na may mabubuting kalooban. 

Ang tanong: “Paano ko malalaman na mabuting tao siya?” Simple lang ang sagot dyan. Nasa Bible din: “A good tree can’t produce bad fruit; neither can a bad tree produce good fruit.” Matthew 7:18. Makikita mo naman sa tao kung maayos sya sa pamamagitan ng kanyang pananalita, gawa at pakikitungo sa kapwa. Kelangan maging mapagmasid ka din, obserbahan mo din ang mga tao gusto mong maging kaibigan. You will know them by their ‘fruits’ Matthew 7:16. May mga tao maayos makitungo sa iyo sa simula, but the longer you stay with them, May mga tao maayos makitungo sa iyo sa simula, but the longer you stay with them, the more you see their ‘true colours’. Lalabas at lalabas ang totoo nilang kulay, so to speak. If you find that a person is not the personality you want to acquire or inherit, be ready to walk away. Let them go and do not be a part of their troubles. You don’t deserve the fools to ruin you. It would be better to be on your own, than to be with people who lack integrity. Ingatan mo ang iyong pangalan. Wag mong hayaang masira ang pagkatao dahil lang sa iba. 

Choose a good reputation over great riches; being held in high esteem is better than silver or gold. -Proverbs 22:1 

Surround yourself with people who will lift you higher and celebrate your success and be there for you in the bad times. Dito mo makilala ang totoong mga kaibigan sa panahon ng kagipitan. They will stay with you, believe in you and be there for you when nobody else wanted to. Good friends are like precious stones. Huwag mong hayaan masira ang mabuting samahan dahil sa mga maliliit na bagay lamang. Cherish and treasure those people who are ready to love you and care for you, and do not need explanation why you do what you do. Yung mga tipong i-encourage ka nila dahil kilala ka nila na kahit nakatawa pero alam nila na down ka at maraming problema.
