There is a saying, “Know who you are talking to.”
Isn’t it equally as important to know who you are listening to? It is the words that you hear that are likely to influence you.
You must have the wisdom to move away from mouths that speak the wrong message. Closing your ears to not hear … as you run away from badness is the best way to avoid trouble.
You never want to be guided by others’ bad advice or stupidity.
Guard your associations. At times, you may have to walk away to shield yourself. Other times, you may need to figuratively or literally, cover your ears so that you hear not!
“Do not be misled. Bad company corrupts good character.” 1 Corinthians 15:33
Preserve your integrity.
Close your ears to unwholesomeness.
