What has happened to the world, where have all of the morals gone? People used to be compassionate and friendly...not so much anymore. Every time you turn around, it seems like there is something going on that makes your cringe.
Last night there was some kind of documentary that hubby was watching and I walked through and listened to it for a few minutes and heard terrible, terrible things - a 5 year old little girl was abducted while she was riding her bike, her mom turned away for a minute and she was gone. They found this little girl's body five days later and she had been sexually assaulted and strangled.
**I don't know the name of this little girl or her family name, but please if you feel compelled to, take a minute right now and pray for her family. God hears all prayers, and I believe that the family needs comfort.**
I am honestly terrified for my children and their entire generation. I pray that the morals and values that are being instilled in them now will hold strong through all the trials that they have ahead of them. I am having to stand on Psalm 22:6 right now as I am writing this.
I know that what I am about to say is not politically correct, and may even offend some people - so be it. Children are being taught to accept so many things that are UNACCEPTABLE - even as early as kindergarten.
Here are some things that I believe and will teach my children, even though it seems to not be the "norm" anymore
* God will never leave you, and He will not give you more than you can handle
* sex is sacred, save it for marriage
* abortion is not birth control, it is murder, it is a sin and it is wrong
* homosexuality is a sin, it is wrong
Just to clarify, I am not perfect! I am not judging anyone by writing this, just sharing my thoughts and beliefs.
There is more...but my baby just woke up and I feel like I need to go love on her right now.
Here is a verse for you all to ponder, if you so desire:
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. —Matthew 5:16
What are you going to do today to glorify God?
