Don’t Follow Them

Key Verse

“Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:” Exodus 23:2

Text — Exodus 23:1-5


Mrs. Manties was surprised by the new style of crying her one-year-old girl has adopted since their visit to her neighbour. She discovered that her child now imitates the method of crying of the neighbour’s son. She watched her for a few days and then decided to stop her daughter from that bad habit. One thing that is bad in the life of children is that, they easily copy the character of one another. A way is not right just because many people follow it. Neither is the attitude right because everyone practices it. God gave a serious warning to us in His word that we should not follow evil practices because many people do them.

In some schools, cheating has become an acceptable way of getting ‘success’. For a Christian child, cheating is a sin before God. Therefore, you must not join them to cheat during examination no matter the pressure. Do not join them in their rioting, partying, disobedience and worldly pursuit. Stand for Christ even if you have to stand alone. Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego did not join the multitude to eat food sacrificed to idols, God honoured their faith that they became ten-times-better than their peers. If you stand for Jesus, He will honour you.
