There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death. (Proverbs 14:12, ESV)
Following the crowd or accepting the popular advice of others is always easier. There is little friction when you follow society’s way of living. It even seems reasonable and right. But going that way only leads to more trouble and ultimately to destruction. Make the tough decision, do things God’s way. Discern what is truly right in the eyes of God, and do it, even if it goes against the current of popular wisdom.
Prayer: Lord, help me to discern your will especially when it will be counter cultural.
