In many of the healing accounts of the Ministry of Jesus, the unclean spirits know who he is. They encounter Jesus as pure goodness and they react in fear and trepidation. 

Do I seek out the best in others? Do I associate with people who bring out the best in me? What does the company that I keep say about me? 

O gracious God, may I be mindful of whom I spend time with. May I always be ready to make the company I keep rooted in love.
