How do you overcome peer pressure? I Timothy 4:;12
The wise youth will be an example of a true believer so as to earn the
respect of his elders. He will be a model in word, or speech, in
conversation or behavior, in charity or love, the "Fruit of the Spirit"
found in Galatians 5, will be present in faith or faithfulness, and in
purity, in motives as well as acts.
In Matthew 5:13-16, the Word says, "Ye are the salt of the earth but if the
salt has lost it's savour where whith shall it be salted, it is thenceforth
good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden underfoot of men."
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
Neither do men light a candlle and put it under a bushel, but on a
candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your
light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Children, if you faithfully read God's Word, the Holy Bible, and pray you
won't sssucumb to peer pressure, you will set an example in
speech, life, love, and purity for others.
