Christ sent us to "share the Good News" to all the World. He meant for us
to be in the World, but not of the World. Yet many Christians become
caught up in the cares and worries of this World and forget to prepare for
the next. Even worse, they have let their children become caught up in
the World. Like Lot who went down to the cities in the valley, we too
have "went down" bringing our children with us.
In order to fulfill our
own ambitions, we have placed our children in day care centers with
workers who either ignore or even physically abuse them. We have allowed
our schools to alienate our children from our God and from us. We have
brought movies that are against the law for our kids to watch downtown
into our homes and laughed at the innuendos and scenes in these movies in
front of our children. We have taken multiple jobs, worked late at night
and on weekends, so that we can "get ahead". All the while our children
are coming home on a bus that has no discipline, children smoking, taking
drugs, and experimenting with sex. Yet, we "know" our kids are going to
turn out "right", because they go to church once a week. We don't have
time for our children, and someday they will not have time for us. Like
Lot, we will wake up one day to find that we have to leave our "Gomorrah"
and flee with nothing, but the clothes on our backs. And how many of our
children will we leave behind to be destroyed???
