She Gets ‘High’ On Life!

I’ve always been a firm believer that there is little good that comes from being in improper places even if our intentions are honorable. I know we are admonished to seek out those in both temporal and spiritual need, but I remember one friend who rationalized that since Christ associated with the sinners that it meant that we should do the same.

The friend who rationalized such decided to do so while in sinful places, thus opening himself up to the enticing of the advisory. Sadly, he was not Jesus Christ and socializing in the “sinners den” soon overcame him and he ended up abandoning his faith. Wiser is the person who stays away from such places while providing an example to others.I believe that we can still love others while maintaining high standards.

Once near the end of my senior year of high school when cool parties are so prevalent, the coolest of all cool parties happened at one of the cool kids house. It is often the case that ‘uncool’ things happen at such parties! Later this conversation was related to me. A friend had attended this party and was standing around with a bunch of kids when he overheard this conversation. One kid said to another, “Wow, anybody who is anybody is here at this party!” The other kid mentioned the name of one of the supposed ‘cool’ kids who wasn’t there and was known for her high standards. The reply came back, “She doesn’t need to be here because she gets high on life!”

I believe that we are here to associate and help all we come into contact with,  be they ‘saints or sinners.’ However, I believe that this can be done without having to put ourselves in harm’s way. We can bless the lives of others by reaching out and lifting them out of places where the spirit doesn’t dwell while still standing in holy places!
