(Proverbs 13:19 KJV) The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: but it is abomination to fools to depart from evil.
Our culture is in direct conflict with the Christian faith. One of the areas of conflict regards the nature of the human being. What are we on the inside? Christians believe that we are contaminated with original sin and thus we tend to be selfish and inclined toward evil. The world believes that all people are morally neutral or inclined toward the good. The teachers in your public school have been indoctrinated by psychology and sociology to believe that the reason so many children are messed up and making bad choices is that their environment has blocked their natural goodness.
Environment has consequences. Most people will concede that. The difference is where you start. This verse reminds us that there are some people who feel very strongly that they need to continue down the path that rejects a holy God and His expectations of righteousness.
So? Don’t expect to fit in. It may go well at times. It may be under the surface. The standards of the world reject the standards of God. Decide which side you are on.
