America’s culture has produced a strange dichotomy.
Around the world, kids are starving to death from poverty, and all while many American kids are choking to death from affluence.
Those third world kids with the swollen bellies and flies buzzing around their heads are doing all they can just to stay alive. All while our American kids struggle with depression, self-harm, over-indulgence, entitlement, and the highest teen suicide rate in the world. And as they seek comfort and brainwash themselves with earphones that routinely buzz their heads, they too have swollen bellies, but it’s too often from gluttony, not starvation. What our kids ARE starving for is our time, love, and discipline – along with something legitimate to worship.
