1 Corinthians 11:1 NIV

Recently my daughter and I were having a conversation concerning following others. Most of us parents have said this at one time or another; “If your friends jump off a bridge would you too? Of course this is not literal, but most of the kids would say, “No”. But my daughter surprised me when she said, “No. I would be in a boat at the bottom to save them.” What a response and it made my heart melt. She has a totally different view of what it means to be a follower. Free will that God gives us allows us to choose whether or not we would jump off that bridge, but God’s saving grace will be there in the end to save us. Following Christ does not mean we stop people from doing things they want to do, even though we can try; but it does allow us to be there when they need us. My daughter may not follow other people when they are heading down a wrong road but she does follow or Lord and Savior. That is a blessing from God and is a nice lesson to learn. God Loves Ya 😉
