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.

Paul said follow me as I follow Christ and that I have done.  He didn't tell me to be controlled by  others.

Well you are then a "Wise Man"  ::smile::
I need to remember that "NOW" is the time for me to follow the Lord.
It is all to often tempting to react to what has happened in the past and not to have our ear tuned to what the Spirit is saying now.
