Our world today values unity, conformance and cooperation. We live in the world where we are ought to comply and submit to the trends, may it be good or may it be bad, we just are expected to cooperate. If we don’t conform, we are the odd-man, we are the weird ones, we are the wallflower.
In the corporate world, conformance is a must. You need to fit into their culture to stay longer. It is okay if the conformance will lead to a better organization, but how about if it is not? If it leads us to a person we don’t want to be? If it leads us to a person we are not proud of?
This world is like that, but King Solomon reminds us,
My son, if sinful men entice you, do not give in to them.
If they say, “Come along with us; let’s lie in wait for innocent blood, let’s ambush some harmless soul; cast lots with us; we will share the loot”-
My son, do not go along with them, do not set food on their paths; for their feet rush into evil, they are swift to shed blood. These men lie in wait for their own blood; they ambush only themselves!
-Proverbs 1:10-11, 14-16, 18
When being in the company of people who gossips, who puts down others, who don’t value values, remember this: STEP FORWARD, MOVE FORWARD; Don’t try to please them by doing what they do; Start living up to the TRUTH that Jesus laid His life to us. That we should walk in His likeness.
Remember Jesus didn’t die and resurrect for nothing but for us to live a life clean of sins and to glorify Him.
