Lesson 2: Don’t Get Burned By Peer Pressure
Everybody wants to be accepted. There’s nothing harder than being in a crowd and standing out because you look differently, act differently, or talk differently than everyone else. Children are daily faced with the pressure to “fit in” by doing things that are contrary to what the Bible teaches and what God wants for their lives. That pressure can be very difficult to DEAL WITH. But, God can give us the courage to stand for what is right even when no one else will. In today’s lesson, we see how Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego chose NOT to give in to peer pressure and worship the idol. It wasn’t easy, but in the end God helped them be victorious!
