Do Christians want "The World" to act like them? Are we surprised when the standards of those around do seem to match ours? Do we treat others with contempt and a scornful eye? We need to remember the words of Peter when he reminded the Christians living near the Black Sea (think Crimea) that they were strangers and aliens living in the World. He encourages them to live in their relationships as real people and real Christians that they might have a positive impact on those around them. We should strive to have the same influence today.
