Ever notice how so many Christian pop songs these days are about pain?
Could it be because Christian teens are in pain?
But, how can this be? Our kids have every material need they could ask for and every entertainment option at their fingertips. In addition, we don’t really require much by way of responsibility from them anymore.
American Christian teens, arguably, have the easiest lives on the planet.
So, why all the pain?
Well, for exactly all the reasons I’ve just mentioned!
Affluence, can often be more damaging than poverty. Just ask any lottery winner. Combine affluence with a lack of responsibility and no kid, Christian or not, will feel good about themselves.
Never allow the seeds of laziness, over-indulgence and entitlement bear fruit in your child.
