“That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the path of the righteous,” (Proverbs 2:20).
Compromising our Christian values is a thing that every Christian wrestles with. Do we have to give in to such temptation? No, we have a greater will power to fight these off.
When we are tempted by others around us to do those things God forbid, we find it so tempting. To fight back, we must find out why it is so tempting in the first place. Paul in 2 Timothy 3:15 informs us that anyone who intend to live a godly life must be able to stand alone and go through persecution. In other instances, we consent to activities that violate our conscience in an effort to avoid conflict.
In order to avoid compromise, it is important to find wisdom in Scripture and allow it to be the guiding light or the standard for our conduct. Begin with Scripture each day, and the Holy Spirit will guide your footsteps.
Memory verse: Joshua 1:8.
“All things are possible to him that believe,” (Mark 9:23).
