Do you often “go with the flow?” It’s a common expression and a common occurrence, generally related to accepting a situation. Sometimes, that’s a good thing, like forgoing your own individual interest in favor of the desires of another or of a group—for instance,  letting someone else pick the restaurant or the movie. In other scenarios, it’s not such a good thing, akin to following an angry mob. The consequences can be harsh, like ignoring the blight of social injustice or showing the kind of insensitivity that many social media posts represent.

Spiritually speaking, to go with the flow is to keep in the way and the will of God, not man. (1 John 4:4). Don’t get caught in an undertow (Ephesians 2:1-2).
