With children from a one parent household being six times more likely to get into trouble at school, get in trouble with the law, drop out of school, or becoming a victim of teenage pregnancy; and the parent five times more likely to be forced onto welfare and collect food stamps, it would seem that we are creating a ever-growing segment of anti-social welfare recipients.
Some would blame this phenomena on movies,TV, music, courts,and government with their brainwashing of young people into believing that their actions are of no consequence,or that people are not responsible for their actions. Nothing could be further from the truth. Whatever we want for another or whatever we do to another will be returned to us. People cannot worship themselves or exalt themselves above others, without being demeaned to a position of inferiority. “The meek shall inherit the Earth.” The self-centered will inherit the dirt.
Only the person is responsible for their own actions. The movie moguls will not pay the consequences for our actions. The schools, courts or government will not suffer because of our actions. Only we will reap reward or punishment for our own actions. Only we will suffer for our mistakes. Only we will reap the rewards of a sensible life. No one can choose for us. We’re not dumb animals to be herded by others. It is our choice and ours alone. And it’s not too late to start the rest of our life.
There is way too much suffering in this world, even under the best conditions. There is no excuse for suffering to be self-inflicted, or to inflict it upon our children.
Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10
