Thought for the Day – Taking Action

This world is filled with a terrible disease, that destroys people, countries, and more. It is called apathy. According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, apathy is: lack of feeling or emotion(impassiveness) OR a lack of interest or concern(indifference). We live in a society full of people who have ceased to care. For example, we have all heard by now about the shooting in California, by a man who hated women. We should be grieving with the families of the victims, praying for the people in the hospital. But what happens? The feminists turn it into a cute hashtag and make it about them. Now, I am not saying that they do not care, but it seems that they care more about their cause, and very little about the actual victims.

As a Christian who has attended several churches during my lifetime, I can honestly say that I have witnessed firsthand the apathy that runs rampant in our churches, especially among teens. Christian teens care more about having fun than learning about God, and more about summer camps that are “more about them” (I quote what a teen I know said) than about camps that center on serving God. What has happened to our culture? When will teens wake up and realize that their future is at stake? If we don’t start taking action, the church will fail. Already we have a generation of teens that believes in the “it’s all about me” gospel. It is time for teens to rise up and fight against the apathy in our culture, and fight for Christ.

“Get up sleeper, and rise up from the dead, and the Messiah will shine on you.” Ephesians 5:14b
