3. Paul and the people of Lystra (Acts 14:6-19)
Don’t be overconfident of your conviction for as long as you are not careful about your association

Strong conviction can give way to strong repulsion by reason of wrong association

If unreliability is worsened by associating with the wrong company, stay away!
