“Meredith Ann, water seeks its own level.”

“You will be judged by the company you keep.”
Ah, the birds of a feather principle. We’re most comfortable with those folks that we have the most in common. I was also taught if I were to find myself in circumstances that I didn’t know how to act or what to do, to watch others and mimic them. I didn’t have to call attention to my ignorance, just observe.
Mother taught wisdom with her pithy sayings, and it left a lasting impression on her children. However, if we mimic Jesus, there will be times when I’ll keep company of those I wish to influence in a positive way. That is, tell the good news. I am an every day missionary.
