Kids killing kids. Students shooting up schools. Partiers getting angry and retrieving their guns. A lot of people think this is a gun issue, but it’s really an issue with the younger generation having no concern for other people’s lives. And why should they? We’ve proven time and again in this society that young
We shove teens away in jail and don’t require them to learn a trade so when they get out they can get a job. The country is more a father to some children then their biological fathers have ever been. Mothers are allowed to shove out baby after baby just to keep receiving government assistance. The prior children are ignored and left to run the streets.
We’re more appalled when a lion is shot than we are at the millions of babies aborted each year.
How can we expect our children to think that life matters when the country proves it doesn’t every single day?
What we must realize is children matter to God. When the disciples were pushing the kids away, Jesus said, Beware that you don’t look down on any of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels are always in the presence of my heavenly Father. Children have always been important to God, yet we treat them like small nothings.
We pay our actors and athletes far more than we do the teachers who spend all day with our children. We no longer force parents to take responsibility, instead coming up with excuses for why kids behave the way they do. And perverts buy and sell children like any other commodity on the market.
It’s the greatest poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish. – Mother Teresa
Babies die every day in this country, so we can live as we wish.
Abortion isn’t the only way we kill our children due to our irresponsible behavior. How many toddlers die each year after being left in cars because we’re so focused on our own lives instead of the little one in the backseat? Everyone feels sorry for the parent for this tragic accident. And the parent faces no punishment for the death of the child. There should always be consequences for our actions. After all, we’re supposed to be adults.
Irresponsibility should never be an excuse for the death of a child, whether by abortion or negligence.
Our society counts its children as second class citizens then we become upset when they act out in violent manners toward others. If we want our children to believe a human life matters, we need to instill that sense of care and concern. The best way to do that is with our actions, not our words.
We, as a Christian society, must make changes today with how we treat our children, or the kill society in which we have instilled in them will only get worse tomorrow.
