Helping Your Child Deal With Peer Pressure

Finally this week here are some verses that will help us when we face peer pressure as adult and as we train our children to make the right decision when facing negative pressure.

Romans 12:1&2 states, “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.  Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

2 Timothy 1:7 states, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.”

Joshua 1:9 states, “This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Another great study is the life of Joseph.  Which can be found beginning in Genesis 37.  One of the main points to note is Genesis 39:6-10, Joseph stood up in the face of temptation.  His reason for the decision that he made was that he did not want to “sin against God.”  This was such an unpopular decision that it landed him in jail.  But it is such a great story to show that even if there are trials for making the unpopular decision God still has a plan for our life.
