STOP AND THINK – The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience. (Harper Lee, Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist)
Although the pressure to conform, to follow the crowd and its fashions may be great, what you decide to do in any given situation is your own choice—no one else’s. You may seek the advice of trusted counselors and advisors, but ultimately, you have to decide. Yours is the only vote that counts. Wise choices result in a clear conscience and show strong character.
[Moses] chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. (Hebrews 11:25)
