Peer pressure is a funny thing. Mostly, it snares those of us who are people pleasers. We tend to be manipulated into doing things we really don’t want to do, just because we don’t want to make a scene and want everyone to be happy.
Jesus encountered peer pressure. “Everyone is looking for you.” That is a pretty strong statement. My natural response would be to go back and try to help those looking for me. Notice what Jesus did? He kept going the direction He started out and didn’t let peer pressure interfere with His objectives.
This is a good model for us. Check with Jesus. Pick your objective. Don’t let others deter you from the task at hand. Now go walk with Jesus today. He likes the company.
“Simon and those who were with him followed after him; and they found him, and told him, “Everyone is looking for you.” He said to them, “Let’s go elsewhere into the next towns, that I may preach there also, because I came out for this reason.””~Mark
