A Poem for Thought

Consequences of Worldly Conformity!

Its all about giving face to draw attention
Or maybe following others in universality
To oneself this demeanor then their extension
Others delight when one partakes their enormity
Although, inside the spirit develops apprehension
As one fakes the delight in this self-deformity
For one's spirit rises in this awkward dissension
As in the world one did give-in to this uniformity
For as one partakes of worldly things to draw attention
One suffers in the consequences of worldly conformity!

Thoughts: It is easy to follow the ideas of others of how one is supposed to be in this world; especially when its attention one seeks. But, to do so can additionally have suffering consequences to one's soul when one knows it is not right, nor their way of being as a Christian. The Bible says "Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world-the lust of flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life-is not of the father but is of the world" (1 John 15-16, NKJV). Christians are to be in the world; but, not of the world. When one is of the world out of trying to fit in, one's soul suffers. Please read, 1 Peter 2:11.
