My parents just had me so I could scrub their sinks and toilets. Basically I was child labor, brought into the world to do all their dirty work. At least that’s what I thought when I was your age.

I have to tell you, this is a question that bothers adults as well. When you are a Christian, it’s so hard to watch another Christian make bad choices. It often makes you question if they are truly a follower of Christ. Proverbs 13:5 says "The righteous hate what is false."
There are two sides to this question, though.
Telling a friend that you don’t want to do something can be hard. Especially if they really want you to do it! It makes us uneasy because we don’t want to hurt their feelings, offend them, or make them mad. Even when you know you’re doing the right thing, it’s still hard.
But, you have to remember: you aren’t responsible for what another person does. You are only responsible for your own actions. You have to choose whether or not you are going to listen to someone you know is doing wrong.
Proverbs 14:16 says:
“The wise are cautious and avoid danger; fools plunge ahead with reckless confidence”.
We’ve all been there, haven’t we?
