The antidote to cultural drift is having a fixed point of reference. Without such a reference point, you drift along with the culture…not even realizing that you’re drifting.
It’s like drifting on a raft in the river. Until you look back and see how far you are from that tree where you started, you’re often unaware of the drift.
Here’s our fixed point of reference:
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
– Hebrews 13:8
Keep the eyes of your heart on Him and you’ll know when you’re drifting. Stay attached to Him and you’ll begin to feel tension with the culture. That tension’s a good thing, because it means you are not drifting.
