04 May You Don’t Have To
Peer pressure is often ascribed to teenagers and young adults. While this is true, adults are not excluded. You see full-grown men and women, even daddies, mommies, grand-daddies and grand-mommies fall under the pressure of their peers.
They do not want to lose their friends so they do every and any thing to keep the friendship. They refuse to listen to The Holy Spirit when they decide to do something wrong because their friends say it okay.
They want to be like this family or that family. At work they want to dress like Mr. or Mrs. So-and-so. They must drive what their friends drive or live where their friends live, listen to what they listen, go to places they go to… Some people go to the extremes of ruining family businesses and finances on this account.
I believe we should learn to say no when a friend advises us to do wrong. And we should severe friendships that tend to drag us into sin rather than Holy Living.
My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent. Proverbs 1:10
