Peer pressure can be a great thing, but it can also be a terrible reality. God has called us to live a life devoted to him – so knowing and understanding his standards is far more important. In this seven-day plan, you will find strength to face the pressure and make wise choices throughout life.
PROVERBS 1:10-16 NKJV
My son, if sinners entice you, Do not consent. If they say, “Come with us, Let us lie in wait to shed blood; Let us lurk secretly for the innocent without cause; Let us swallow them alive like Sheol, And whole, like those who go down to the Pit; We shall find all kinds of precious possessions, We shall fill our houses with spoil; Cast in your lot among us, Let us all have one purse”— My son, do not walk in the way with them, Keep your foot from their path; For their feet run to evil, And they make haste to shed blood.
If the crowd is doing wrong, make it less crowded. Easier said than done right? Peer pressure can be a great thing and it can also be a terrible reality. Not many students want to stand out and be alone, especially if they might lose friends. Any friend that asks you to compromise something that you believe in is probably not as good of friend as you think. Facing peer pressure is having the ability to do what is right even though it is not popular. The key to this is to determine your standards and boundaries before a situation arises. It is so difficult to make the right choice in the heat of the moment. Curious about what God says about peer pressure? Find out this week!
