I have always been guilty of giving in to the pressure placed on me by others…whether it was intentional or not. I remember deliberately turning my back on a group of my black friends during my senior year of high school because I had gotten close to some guys over the summer and they were pretty much racist. I didn’t have the guts to stand up for what I knew was right. I have always regretted that…and yet…I have continued to do similar things over and over again.
Integrity is tough for me. It’s an area that I need massive work in. That scares me because God typically refines His people through fire.
