Do you envy all the fun the people around you seem to be having? If you’re a Christian, does it seem like God has forbidden you to have any fun at all? Although it may seem like the things that God forbids us to be involved in might be a lot of fun, the truth is that those things are always destructive, no matter how much fun they may seem to be. God does not forbid things because He hates us! He forbids things that will hurt us because He loves us! If the people you’re hanging around with are trying to get you to do things that are against God’s commands for you, then they are not your friends. Remove yourself from the situation as soon as you can and spare yourself the temptation and the injury.
“Away from me, you evildoers, that I may keep the commands of my God!” Psalm 108:115
