On Your Own Feet

It takes an independent thinker to accept a newfound desire to learn and talk about Jesus and to pursue that goal in an atmosphere that isn’t Christian.

This reward is not only for the person who is able to stand on their own feet but also for the many people who are inspired by that person along the way.

It is common for a person to gauge how they should think about controversial issues by what the people around them tend to think. In fact, a person often comes to think what the people around them do naturally. However, when a person does begin to form an opinion that differs from the ideas of friends, family, and other social contacts on a controversial topic, it can also be natural to fear expressing that opinion.


It can be difficult for a person to stand on their own feet and hold up a controversial idea without the support of the people around them. However, that is what it takes to be an independent thinker, and independent thinking is needed for someone to become a Christian in a chunk of the public square where there aren’t any other Christians. It takes an independent thinker to accept a newfound desire to learn and talk about Jesus and to pursue that goal in an atmosphere that isn’t Christian.


The reward is the happiness that comes from a relationship with Jesus Christ, learning how to lead a more fulfilling life that embraces all of humanity as brothers and sisters, and more. This reward is not only for the person who is able to stand on their own feet but also for the many people who are inspired by that person along the way.
