Contagious - Giving or Taking

Seth Godin posted here last week about so many things being contagious. He said that the most important thing you can do is choose who you're hanging out with. He also said that we must put dynamics in place that reinforce the ideas that we would like to see spread.

The church knows how contagious our lives can be. My entire Christian life I have heard church leaders say that we need to be careful who we hang out with because will very likely become like them. The problem is that Jesus never hung out with people he wanted to be like or even wanted to be associated with. He hung out with people that he wanted to become like Himself.

As Christians, are we giving or taking. Are we spending time with people we want to be like or are we spending time with people who we want to see meet Jesus?
