OUR YOUTH ARE NOT OUR FUTURE: THEY ARE OUR  PRESENT

 

We heard this statement many years ago.  The name of the person who made it is not remembered but the words are so true.

We have many wonderful kids in the world today.  But just look at what is going on all around them.  Powerful societal influences are for the most part not the kind that encourage lives of goodness that will eventually lead to an eternity of happiness in Heaven.  St. Peter put it this way:  "Be sober and vigilant.  Your opponent the devil is prowling around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour."         It appears he has plenty of help!  

Our youth are having to move carefully through spiritual mine fields:  violence and immorality of every description permeate the movies, TV, music, and  social media.  These could be a great force for good, and there are a few examples that exist.  Thank God for the few...but the key word is "few". 

God has been evicted from public schools and institutions. The culture of death has invaded the conscience of our nation so subtly that many people who seem to be for the most part decent, God-fearing folk casually accept the lies that falsely justify acts like abortion and euthanasia. 

What is the Lord asking of us?  No matter who you are, no matter your age or gifts or skills, every one of us is called to do our part.  Suggestions:
 
1)  Pray for the youth of our Church, our country, and our world.
2)  Ask the Lord to give you a loving compassionate heart toward our kids...all kids, especially teens.
3)  Be open to the Holy Spirit's lead  and willing to get involved in some type of ministry to youth. Not all are called, but many who are called may be holding back.

Holy Spirit, lead and guide us all.
