Following The Crowd....Or Not

Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.” 1 Corinthians 15:33

In the movie 'Grease' Olivia Newton-John plays the clean cut girl Sandy who meets a summer romance Danny played by John Travolta. When Sandy moves and ends up at his high school that fall as a new student,  much to his surprise, she is tempted to change to a bad girl to win him since he is part of a cool gang. 

Bad company and bad influences can make people do stupid things they regret later. Youth is full of foolishness but even as adults wrong choices can be made if you have wrong peer group or perhaps even wrong work. Deep down inside if a person was raised correctly with Christ as center of life, then the concept of right and wrong is there implanted. In the business world people may be tempted to cheat on travel reports, steal office supplies, fudge the books, and many other things. Honesty and integrity are vitally important. 

Choose wisely my friend. Surround yourself with people who love Jesus first and foremost. If you have gotten off track,  God is a God who restores and redeems. Many a despairing parent has been on their knees when the children they raised turned their back on Bible things. Stand strong as the story is not over! 

PRAYER: Oh Lord thank you for second and even third and fourth chances. Your heart breaks when your children go astray but you gently call them back. Thank you for constant hope. In Jesus' name. Amen.

  1. A very inspirational message. Graduations approach and another group of children will be venturing into the adult world. We need to pray for those young people.
