THE WORD FOR TODAY
2 You shall not follow a crowd to do evil…
Peer pressure…the pull to do something good or bad because our peers are doing. Peer pressure affects the young and the old…no one is immune to its pull and its pressure.
Listen to Gods Word, “You shall not follow a crowd to do evil…”
In continuing to instruct God’s people in ways to have a Godly community the people are challenged to not follow a crowd to do evil.
It is so very easy to follow the crowd…everybody is doing it…so that gives me permission. But God’s Word tells us that we should never follow the crowd to do evil. It doesn’t matter how loud their voice…how passionate their argument…how appealing their cause…don’t follow their path if it leads to evil.
There is a time to draw a line in the sand saying, “I will not cross this line…I will not go this direction.”
Lord, help us to never follow the crowd down the path of evil…In Jesus Name...AMEN!!!
