God warns young people to avoid those running after their own gain by hurting others. Sharing a common purse with the greedy is foolish – you’ll wind up with nothing. The prodigal son found this out. So maintain proper boundaries, even with good friends, and stay distant from Mr. Worldly wise. Bad company corrupts good character, so be discerning. Think not just about when you get to be with your friends again. Think about how you can pursue godliness WITH them. Do your friends generally pursue the Lord, or a laugh? Lasting things or fleeting things? Do you, do they, pursue service of others or the limelight for themselves? How are you seeking the good of your companions?
