Matthew 7:13-14

Enter in through the narrow gate, for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many there are who go in through it. Because narrow is the gate and straight is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. ~ Matthew 7:13-14

Our Young People Need Us

Ephesians 6:4 “Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.”

ShepherdChildMore and more, we are seeing the devastating effects of our Post-Christian culture upon our young people.  We are now beginning to understand the horror that the Lord knows when people don't have knowledge of the truth.  Our kids have been left out in the mad rush to self-gratification that started with the "Woodstock" generation.  Could this be the "wormwood" that is spoken of in Revelation?  Our kids need us.  They need us to grow up and become adults that they can model themselves after, that they can depend upon to show unselfish and pure qualities.  Our kids need to see that we care about them.

Let's all please stop exasperating our children by making them live in a no-win expectancy.  Let's help them to know the truth that makes free by deciding to know the truth ourselves and to walk in it.  We want them to go through the door that leads to life.  We will have to go through ourselves in order to lead them.
