Dangerous times are bad enough. But dangerous times with no moral compass are exponentially worse.
Even though my wife and I never had kids we’ve always loved them. And we always get a kick out of their imaginative outlook on life. In fact, that’s why I’ve created music and books and pictures and videos for kids. I want them to enjoy all that and be safe and loved.
But we live in mighty dangerous times.
Because this world is filled with dangerous men (and even some women).
And there’s an excellent book that talks about this. It describes men who only love themselves. Men (and women) who only love money or pleasure. And it says how they become boastful, full of false pride, unthankful, unloving, unforgiving, brutal, and despising anything good.
“Grownups,” like that, end up raising disrespectful and disobedient kids.
No surprise. And nowadays when anybody uses the term “disobedient kids,” they’re ridiculed.
But those who ridicule don’t realize that an obedient, respectful kid is almost always the one raised in a happy home. Where discipline happens fairly and with love.
This beautiful world is gonna get even more dangerous if parents continue to raise kids with no moral compass. And I mean a moral compass based on trustworthy truth that won’t change with the election of a new class of politicians. Truth that won’t change with the passing of another million laws. And truth that won’t change just because it isn’t cool anymore.
I want all kids, from the moment they’re conceived, to be loved. And I mean loved way beyond simple human understanding. A love that doesn’t hand ’em a coke and a smile and a hug and leaves out morality. And a love that encompasses their spirit forever.
Sure, I know even saying this is a risk these days. Because a large majority of people don’t wanna hear this kind of message. But I also know not saying it risks so much more.
In these (and the coming) dangerous times look up.
Like the old Boy Scout motto said: Be Prepared.
Look up, past the clouds, where your Hope is real.
Be glad, every day. Let your life reveal
Your heart, filled with love, by the One who knew
The life He’d give you, if you want Him to.
