Am I a square or round person? I’m a total square – don’t fit into any round hole. Guess that’s why I was never popular in school. When my fellow students were carousing and engaging in every kind of ungodly activity, I could be found in the library, or in the music studio playing music on the piano, or studying the Bible – something profitable.
When my fellow students were engaged in smoking cigarettes, I never could understand what was so exciting about allowing fire, smoke, tar, and nicotine to get into your nose, mouth, and lungs. Never could understand what was so exiting about getting drunk, and then having to undergo the consequences of that drunken state. Those kind of activities were never appealing to me.
Kids today, like kids in my day, allow their peers to dictate their thoughts and actions. My advice to kids today is – be a leader instead of a follower. Don’t listen to or follow the crowd (unless it’s to a restaurant!). Listen to the wisdom of your parents and grandparents. Read your Bible and do what’s right in God’s sight, then you’ll be right – be a square!
