The Holy Scriptures tell us the following about friendship:
Proverbs 13:20 - He who walks with wise men becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.
Proverbs 22:24-25 - Make no friendship with a man given to anger, nor go with a wrathful man, lest you learn his ways and entangle yourself in a snare.
1 Corinthians 15:33 - Do not be deceived. Bad company ruins good morals.
Luke 6:31- And as you wish others to do unto you, do so to them.
Ephesians 4:29-32- Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
