Bible

Proverbs 13:20 (ESV)
Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.
who we spend time with matters
who we spend time with helps shape our life

God determines what is wise.

Wise friends loyal and kind.

Proverbs 3:3–4 (NLT)
Never let loyalty and kindness leave you! Tie them around your neck as a reminder. Write them deep within your heart. Then you will find favor with both God and people, and you will earn a good reputation.

Wise friends try to give before they take.

Proverbs 14:20–21 (NLT)
The poor are despised even by their neighbors, while the rich have many “friends.” It is a sin to belittle one’s neighbor; blessed are those who help the poor.

Wise friends are there for you in the good and bad.

Proverbs 17:17 (NLT)
A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need.

Wise friends are honest.

Proverbs 27:5–6 (NLT)
An open rebuke is better than hidden love! Wounds from a sincere friend are better than many kisses from an enemy.
They will tell you if something or someone is a bad idea.
They are not in it for the laughs, but for you.

Wise friends don’t talk bad about behind your back.

Proverbs 16:28 (NLT)
A troublemaker plants seeds of strife; gossip separates the best of friends.

Wise friends are not angry all the time.

Proverbs 22:24–25 (NLT)
Don’t befriend angry people or associate with hot-tempered people, or you will learn to be like them and endanger your soul.

Wise friends lift you up and don’t push you down.

Ecclesiastes 4:9–10 NLT
Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.

Wise friends don’t try to get you to do something wrong.

Proverbs 1:10 (NLT)
My child, if sinners entice you, turn your back on them!

Be a wise friend to find wise friends.
