I just read something that talked about worldly traditions. Why do we involve ourselves in such chaos. We all have our own traditions as families that have been going on for generations. Some of them are good traditions, but some of them are not so good. Do you think that being close to God is great? I do, but if there is a tradition that is in place, even if it is with your own family, such as Thanksgiving, is it okay to overeat yourself till you cannot eat anymore? Is it because that is the tradition in your family and it is always what you do? Some churches traditionally reject people from other races. Is that okay? Some families traditionally fight about everything! Just because what you are doing is popular culture doesn't mean that God approves of it or wants you to follow it. Back in the day Jesus rebuked some of the people around him by asking them, "Why do you yourself transgress (exceed or overstep) the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition?" Some traditions are good, but some on the other hand, are clearly sinful, foolish, and vain. These are what will add unnecessary burdens to yourself and your families. Be a chain breaker in your family, chart a different course in your life that will be pleasing to God. Set a new path for your family.
Loving God, following God and seeking more of him!
