You are looking at a product of that, me. And there are many others here who are a product of that. It’s a God thing. Also, it’s a parent thing and it’s a peer thing. You better believe it. You can bet your bottom dollar that it’s a church thing.
Parents, please, if you are inexperienced, hey, let me just say please to you. This is for all of the inexperienced people. Here is the big word: Trust. Trust God. God’s ways are higher than our ways. God never asks us to sacrifice just for sacrifice sake. He’s not a cosmic kill joy, inexperienced ones. When God asks you and me to sacrifice, he always has an excellent plan, an awesome agenda on the horizon.
Trust God. Trust his book. His guidelines are for our best. And trust your parents. Trust the God-given, integrity-driven leaders that God has placed in your child’s path. Trust the ones who love the Lord, who love your child. Listen to advice. Maybe you’re in the inexperienced camp, I don’t know. The big word is “trust.”
THE CAMP OF THE IN-DIFFERENT
There is another camp that causes all of us to make dumb, “What was I thinking?” decisions; and we’ve all been there before. I know I have in this next camp. It’s called the camp of the indifferent. The book of Proverbs calls this camp, the camp of the fools. Let’s go ahead and read.
Proverbs 10:23, “A fool…” Oh, this is hard here, “…finds pleasure in evil conduct…” If you’re a fool, if you’re making decisions in this camp, then dumb decisions, evil pleasure is just like a sport to you – an extreme sport. Fools think, “Yeah! Evil conduct! Yeah, man, party!”© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young Blog
