In the massive and diverse flow of opinions about life and how we should live, the only way to live a right and honorable life is to align our response to those opinions with God’s word. Only then will we be aligned with truth, even if the moment of our obedience divides us from the crowd of accepted public opinion.
To make such a decision requires integrity and courage. In those defining moments, our willingness to obey God’s word will overshadow any response to the rejection and mockery our obedience will create. Obedience to God’s word is where the next generation of spiritual heroes will emerge and be defined in the history of the Church.
