Time to get serious

In Uncategorized on April 17, 2008 at 1:53 pm

Hello,

Well, I said I would be serious when the time comes.  So here I am, being serious.  First, if you have never been to The Rebelution ask you parents to read "The Myth of Adolescence", it hits some pretty deep stuff, I think they (your parents) would appreciate you having them read it first, and anyone who has kids should read it .

(click the links after you read this post) I was reading on The Rebelution, and I saw a post on the blog, called "The Myth of Adolescence" and I came to this paragraph:

Our world cannot last another generation of Christian young people who fit in. The shackles of society are on our minds and hearts, not our ankles. We are held back only by the myth of adolescence and the lies of social expectations. If we would only recognize that our restraints are illusory, and then let God’s Word and all of history govern our sense of what we are capable of, we would be a force this world could no longer ignore.

We face a crisis and an opportunity. A crisis, in the sense that we can no longer afford to slowly drift towards adulthood, viewing the teen years as a vacation from responsibility, and an opportunity, in the sense that we can embrace life now and make a difference for the glory of God, and for the good our family, our nation, and our world. Look down at your “ankle” and see the pathetic contrivance that has been restraining you. Now renew your mind in the light of God’s Word and take a step forward.

 

Ok, two paragraphs.  That first one realy caught my attention.  Especially that first sentence.  Hmm…
