With promises like this to pull us on, dear friends, let’s make a clean break with everything that defiles or distracts us, both within and without. Let’s make our entire lives fit and holy temples for the worship of God. 2 Corinthians 7:1
Many of us still mix in circles with people who’s values are completely different from ours. In recovery this can be a struggle, especially if our life-style is now completely different from the circles we mix in. The recovery life we are leading today should show others what we believe, how we have changed and who it was the enables us to change.
Obedience to God’s will needs to come before what is praised and accepted by society.
