What if I could take my children basically anywhere without images of soft porn all around?
What if people dated with the intentions to marry?
What if we let kids have time free of activities?

What if us churchgoers quit talking so much and started living it?
We were not made to walk on eggshells. Sometimes it takes some guts to say it how it is, not for our own glory, but to shift people’s focus. The truth is that none of the above questions should be debatable if we would quit listening to this illogical world and start using our brains as to what makes sense. The world can be so loud with their opinions and tactics to make you follow, but only the Holy Spirit can give that confidence to stand strong.
I’ll end with the chorus of a corny old country song sung by Aaron Tippin, “You’ve got to stand for something or you’ll fall for anything. You’ve got to be your own man not a puppet on a string. Never compromise what’s right and uphold your family name. You’ve got to stand for something or you’ll fall for anything.”
