Someone once said that if you put a chunk of pure gold next to a chunk of pure silver invisible flecks of silver will cross over and embed themselves in the gold. And specks of the gold will cross over and embed themselves in the silver. What happens to these two metals happens to people. In close contact, our character and values can crossover which could be for good or bad. In the case of Solomon’s wives, it was evil leading Solomon the Wise to idolatry. Who are those closest to us? What kind of influence are they having on us?
