On a daily basis, we face pressure to simply follow the crowd, and go along with what everybody around us is doing. However, just because everybody’s doing it doesn’t make it a wise decision, or the right thing to do!
There are many people who have made choices with lasting consequences which they later regret, simply by doing things the way everyone else seems to be doing them. Before you join the path everybody else is following, ask yourself if it is really is the path you should follow!
Romans 12:2 tells us not to conform to the pattern of the world around us, but instead to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. In other words, DON’T simply BE LIKE EVERYONE AROUND YOU! Dare to stand out, and do things God’s way rather than just trying to fit the mold and follow the path everyone else is following. Spend time with God. Read His Word. Listen to what He has to say to you. Let Him renew your mind to His wisdom, and watch transformation take place in your life!
