It’s especially hard now with all the technology, the sinful nature of the media trying to influence you, and the peer pressure from your friends trying to be “cool.”
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. – Romans 12:2
When you set yourself apart from the destruction that often surrounds you, you’re letting your own light shine through and allowing God turn you into the person you were meant to be.
