Proverbs 29:25 The fear of man bringeth a snare: But whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe.
How often do we cause our fear of man to trap us. We are afraid of what they think. We want them to like us. We worry more about what others think than what God Himself thinks.
We have a major problem with “peer pressure!” We can say it is a teen problem but adults seem to be afflicted with the same problem.
How about we decide to trust God and what He will do in our lives and forget man’s approval. How about we make decisions based on what God wants and not what our friends want.
That would make for some revolutionary thought processes-wouldn’t it?
