When I was growing up there was a lot of talk about “peer pressure.” The anti-peer pressure movement was almost as big as the anti-bullying movement during modern times. As a result, there was a huge emphasis on thinking for yourself and not allowing oneself to get in trouble as the result of the actions of others. I think it helped many people, but others were not as lucky. I know many people whose youth was spent confined to prison cells because of being with the wrong group of people at the wrong time. You, too, may know of people who fell into this unfortunate predicament.
Well, I want to encourage you to make sure you are connected to the right people. I don’t mean staying away from people who just break laws in the natural. It is also important for you to stay away from people who break spiritual laws and who may be immoral in ways that would tempt you into situations that would not be good for you.
I want to encourage you to assess the connections in your life and cut the bad ones and embrace and cherish the good ones. It will change your life because there is power in having the right connections!
