So many people bow to peer pressure or societal “norms” and suppress their ideals, violating their own principles. This is sad, because all we really have to call our own is our character. When we remain true to our convictions, we might be scorned or rejected, but we can feel secure in knowing we’ve maintained integrity. Integrity leads to peace with yourself, and it pleases God, which brings us deep down contentment. This world and it’s fickleness will lead us astray, but God’s truths will never fail.
