CHECK YOUR COMPANY
“And the LORD said unto Moses, Go on before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Israel….” (Exodus 17: 5)
When God told Moses to go ahead of the people, He also told Moses to take the elders of Israel with him. Those elders of Israel were already ahead of the people, and God told Moses to go ahead with them. In the journey of going ahead of the people, Moses needed a company of those who were also ahead.
Friend, if you truly intend to move ahead or stay ahead, maintain a company of those who are also ahead. Stay connected to those who share values that matter to you; stay connected to those who are going in the same direction as you; stay connected to those whose positive virtues will rub off on you; maintain a company of those who are passionate about excellence; connect with those who desire what you desire.
If you desire to be more knowledgeable, then stay connected to those who are more knowledgeable than you and people who are also desirous of becoming more knowledgeable. If you desire to be more competent, then surround yourself with a network of competent people; if you desire to be more prayerful, tag along with those who have a passion and fire for prayer; if you want to please God, then connect with people who are God chasers.
God would not have told Moses to take the elders with him if it didn’t matter; God would not have told Moses to keep the company of people who were already ahead if it weren’t necessary. Don’t destroy the environment of your greatness by retaining relationships you urgently need to relinquish.
