This generation is in a world of hurt. A school is no longer a safe place. Young people are experienced abuse, hurting themselves and killing themselves and with the many school shootings, they have watched their friends be killed by others.
Our world is a mess! You might not feel like you can do much, but you can do something!
There are four questions this next generation is asking adults:
• Do you really love me?
• Are you really real?
• Can I trust you?
• Does your philosophy of life really work?
So, if you want to impact a teenager, ask yourself these questions:
• Do I really love kids?
• When a teenager looks at me do they see someone who is real?
• Am I a person who can who can be trusted?
• Is my philosophy of life really working for me?
There are many philosophies in the world, but when a young person looks at your life, do they see a person who has built their life on Godly principles?
Jesus tells a very simple, yet profound story about two builders. They both built houses; the difference was the foundation they built on. Jesus says one man used sand and the other built his house on the solid foundation of a rock. What are you building on and how is that working for you?
This generation needs you! They are looking to people who can answer those four simple questions they are asking. Will you be someone who really cares? If so, you can impact the life of a teenager and can make a difference for a lifetime.
