I find it interesting how we all tend to build our lives on foundations laid by others. There is great peer pressure to do so. As we get older there is a tendency to become more set in our ways. People want to believe that they have the truth and will follow where ever it, [or He] leads.
We all know there is both a cost and reward in following the truth.
To follow Christ we need only to commit ourselves to Him. However this takes us out of the control of others and will bring their wrath.
