While talking to young people about preparing for the future, I have had many to say something like this; "We must get into the world to experience ungodly situations and ungodly people in order to grow stronger."

This type of thinking has swallowed up many an immature Christians and even totally turned them against God. Sure, we are in the world and we are exposed to non-Christian situations, however, we need to be careful that exposure to those situations does not lead to embracing ungodly philosophies. All of us would mature faster by following the divine pattern suggested in the book of Psalm.

First, let's not let our decisions and choices be controlled by 'counsel of the ungodly." Second, we shouldn't  put ourselves in a place where those who don't know Jesus can unduly influence out thought processes. Third, let's avoid getting comfortable with those who mock God, His Word, and His role in out life so that their thinking appears right to us.


Counsel from such sources leads us away from God. Instead, it is best to get our training, guidance, and advice from God's holy Word, and those who know it and love it. God and His Word, not experiences, are our best teacher.
