Fearing people is a dangerous trap, but trusting the Lord means safety. – Proverbs 29:25 (NLT)
Have you ever been more concerned about what other people thought of you than what God thought of you? Maybe you know from going to church and reading your Bible that something is wrong, but when all your friends are around you do it anyway. You’d rather let God down than have your friends not like you.
This Bible verse calls that kind of thinking a dangerous trap. When you get so consumed with what others think that you do things that don’t please God you’re headed down a bad path.
When you’re faced with situations where you need to choose between what God says is right and your friends or family, always choose God. When you choose to follow after God you’ll always have safety and be happier.
