As loyal followers of Jesus Christ, we cannot let
the self-centered world set the stage for us.
God’s people must decrease in that manner
so He may increase within us.
Just because the world’s stage lights are bright
and flashy does not mean we should forget
our morals for a second in the spotlight.
Just because the world prides itself on being
famous or worthy to receive praise
does not mean we should idolize its mediocrity.
Just because the world is a trendsetter
does not mean we should forget modesty
to make friends with modernization.
Just because the world is full of
academy award winners, actors and actresses
waiting for the camera to roll does not mean
we should stand up and applaud its stupidity.
God’s people must separate themselves
from the crowd take a sideroad from the broad
and overcrowded route that leads to destruction;
only a few will be strong enough to walk away.
