When we pay attention, we notice many things that need that attention and we're living in an age where we need to acknowledge the responsibility and particulars of the parental job.
We're living in a world where the majority of our population consist of young kids and teenagers. Some of which don't know anything about Christ or being saved. But glory to God for those who have given their heart to a life of much more than their existence. Those who take heed and listen. Who don't consider themselves as being above another but love and care for one another.
Wouldn't you like to see all of our young people in line with the Word of God? I do, and I know a lot of them live a life that's really hard. Some taking all kind of risk as though life is a game or a deck of cards. But they too have the same opportunity and choice. Though their world is a lot different than mine or yours. Some have a perception from eyes that may not have been taught. Dealing with a new wave of crime, peer pressure and intimidation. Some of which, the average adult can't even relate to and though generations change our God remains the same.
I encourage you all to be an example and answer the call. We have a responsibility to pay attention, love and listen to our children. Finance does not take the place of raising a child. It does help to keep them alive; to a point. However there's much need and want, that money can't by.
Some, being born in the midst of turmoil, may not even see the difference between abnormal and normal, or right and wrong. Because they haven't experience the comfort, love, peace, hope or joy some have already found.
As Christians we know there is a better life. We know many have made sacrifices. The greatest one, by Jesus Christ. Yet so many people are participating in the destruction of our youth. Including some so called; Christians acting like they have no clue as to, what to do. Knowing the Word says; raise up a child in the way to go. Something any responsible person should know.
Of course some of us are; or have been a victim of what many suffer. Including me. I've suffered from child abuse, spousal abuse, racial abuse, being used and falsely accused, which is only a part. I've also caused some damage. So its not that hard to see the need.
Being a previous victim; I've often wondered how an adult can subject a child to an outrageous act; when they can't even comprehend it.
Through the word, I've come to learn, that it was not only a sinful act of lust. But also a wicked spirit; trying to conquer innocence.
An evil force from the darkness of this world making an attempt to enslave and destroy. But trust; God is in control. Though the enemy is in and of this world. My God has healed me and delivered my soul. And he can do the same for you and yours. Man, Woman, Boy or Girl. It doesn't matter what the reason or cause. Jesus Christ can take care of it all.
I encourage you adults, Christians, or whatever religion you choose to believe in; to open your eyes and see the evil trying to destroy our children. Than take your position and began to release them. Show them the way to freedom. Give love in purity. Protect them from the enemy by giving them to God in Jesus Christ. They too should have the opportunity of eternal life.
