Why are we so afraid of doing the right thing? Most of the time, it’s because of peer pressure, which is a very unhealthy addiction.
We worry about what others think, and what they will say. When we concern ourselves with the thoughts of what man thinks, we have given them power over us. No one can take our power unless we allow it. Each time we don’t do the right thing because of what one may say or think, we have given up our power.
You are a child of God. You belong to God our Father. He is your Father. Your concern is with God, not man.
Kick the peer pressure addiction, stop being afraid of man, take back what’s yours — your power, know who you are, and whose you are. Trust God and step out on faith. He got you, in more ways than you can imagine!
