What do you do when everyone else is doing it?
There is ample opportunity to cut corners, to cheat, to ‘score,’ to sell the flawed dressed up as the perfect, after all, everyone else is doing it, or are they?
I can hear my dad in my ears, “Well if everyone else was jumping off a bridge would you do it?”
The answer is supposed to be ‘no,’ but I’ve grown up in a culture that actually jumps off bridges and pays someone for the opportunity. So the point gets clouded and indistinct. I see a culture today where there is a lot of ‘fuzz’ and not enough clarity.
Where are the Daniel’s of our day, the three Hebrew children? Where are the uncompromising, the integral, the honest if you will?
When it seems not to matter when no one appears to be looking, where are the men and women who play it straight?
Do you know anyone like that?
Do your friends?
