Yesterday I posted (on Facebook) about our Youngest Daughter wishing (as a little girl) that she was “all growed up. ” That has prompted some discussion — as well as some thinking on my part.
THIS morning, I would like to say that I’m glad for the children who do not know the weight of being an adult. Our world has far too many that are old before their time — who have been forced into burdens that were never meant for a child to carry. Children who have been given information that clouds their innocence, whose eyes have seen inappropriate activity, violence and bloodshed. Children who have known hunger, disease, abandonment, and war. This is not the world I want for my grandchildren, and it is not the world that will grow strong men and women of God.
Listen, brothers and sisters–
This is what God said to his people in 2 Chronicles 7:14
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
PRAY, HUMBLE OURSELVES, SEEK GOD’S FACE, REPENT.
I’m pretty sure these are grown up things that we all can and should do.
May God have mercy on us all!
