Adopt a Teen

16 Your sons will take the place of your fathers;
    you will make them princes throughout the land.
17 I will perpetuate your memory through all generations;
    therefore the nations will praise you for ever and ever. Psalm 45:16-17

It’s easy to become disheartened when you see lawlessness and corruption. The older you get, the more you tend to see. It’s as if the blinders have been taken off after you get to a certain age. You also begin thinking about the next generation of Believers growing up and how they’ll handle the messes they’ve been given. But the more I am on social media such as Twitter and Facebook, the more confident I am that their faith will survive the upcoming chaos.

There are strong teens even now who are bold and courageous, especially among their peers. If you see a teen who is strong in faith, encourage as much as humanly possible. The task they have before them is much greater and weightier than we had. They don’t get much credit for being bold, and are often ridiculed for the stances they take for abortion, their faith, and abstinence. Encourage them as you can.

Your sons will take the place of your fathers; Psalm 45:17

No, I’m not worried so much anymore. We’re in capable hands.
