Peer pressure has the ability to control us if we are not careful. We need to be like Paul. He stood faithful to God no matter what people thought of him. Even when people dishonored him and physically beat him, he remained joyous in the Lord. Let's consider Paul when we are tempted to let circumstances or the expectations of others control us. Let us be firm in our resolution to serve the living God no matter what and to resist the thought of compromising our faith for the sake of gaining approval from others.
