Daily Moment Of Thought
Monday December 9, 2013
Our two-year old grandson is a picky eater.
He knows what he doesn't want when it comes to his menu.
Just in case we don't understand when he turns his head away we get it as soon as he displays the ugliest face he can muster if we try to force him.
Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12:2 The Message Bible
In a society where it seems like we are forced to accept everything thrown our way, taking cues from a picky two-year old starts to make sense.
No matter how much people or the media may glamorize it, we don't have to conform to worldly ways.
The power of suggestion and the implication given to it has corrupted individual choice.
Peer pressure is alive and well. No one is immune to it. However, no one has to conform.
God has given us the freedom and wisdom to operate in a Godly manner.
Be bold and courageous.
Whenever you feel pressured to do something you know is against God's will for your life stand firm.
Sadly, there will be those who don't get it. They may be unwilling to accept your lack of conformity.
Here's where a two-year old picky eater can teach us much .
As they attempt to corrupt your morals and standards, display one of the ugliest turned up faces you can muster. They'll get the picture. Quick.
Don't be coerced to digest anything that's not pleasing to you or Him.
Everyone enjoy your day.
