Conforming

I have succumed to the peer-pressure, jumped on the band wagon and entered the world of blogs; after all "everyone was doing it". Is this just a case of conforming? In this situation I don't think so. But it makes me think of all the times my decisions or choices are based on a desire to meet others expectations or in an attempt to earn their appreciation and respect. I confess it is a powerful motivation at times.

Gives me a greater respect for the man Jesus was. Everyone wanted him to fit into their molds. Yet He never conformed to the desires of the crowds, the religious experts and leaders, or even his friends. He knew who he was and God's plan for His life -and he lived it. Just another way I want to be more like Jesus.
