People’s lives are influenced or even determined by their environments – time, place, work, family, history and culture. Most of us would like to think we are going our own way, but are we really? To what extent can we influence society around us? Are the choices we make really our own? What happens if the choices we make go against the grain?
*** When and group of people going one direction it’s easy to go with the flow, however when you one person trying to go against the crowd (100 or more people). It would be very difficult. It’s possible but very difficult. I often think about Jesus he was that one person going against the grain sort of speak. You will stand out like and sore thumb. So you would need some type of help a guild or map to help you find your way. That’s where the bible comes in Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my foot, And a light for my path.
“A Lamp to My Foot” Every day, we make decisions. Some decisions may seem relatively minor, but we may at times be confronted with a situation that challenges our morality, our honesty, or our neutral stand. To face such trials successfully, we must have our “perceptive powers trained to distinguish both right and wrong.” (Hebrews 5:14) By obtaining accurate knowledge of God’s Word and developing an understanding of its principles, we train our conscience so that we will make decisions that please Jehovah.—Proverbs 3:21.
“A Light to My Roadway” Psalm 119:105 also states that God’s utterances can light our roadway, illuminating the path ahead. We are not left in the dark when it comes to the future, for the Bible explains the meaning of distressing world conditions and what the outcome will be. Yes, we realize that we are living in “the last days” of this wicked system of things. (2 Timothy 3:1-5) Knowing what lies ahead should have a profound impact on how we live now.
