42+Bible Verses About Hanging Out With The Wrong Crowd

We need good friends who can help us in growing in every aspect of our life. But it is not easy to get them. We cannot trust our friends and if we simply believe them then we have to suffer in our lives.

The word of God has warned us to be wise in order to have knowledge and understanding for choosing friends who can really uplift us. But if we do not get such friends then we must give up the company of the wrong crowd.

When we spend our precious time with such useless people then we put ourselves in danger. As they have no goal in their lives so we become like them. The reason we must give up their company is to build ourselves in order to get the life that the Lord has planned for us.

Let us meditate upon the following bible verses which will help us to avoid hanging out with the wrong crowd.
