“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” ~Proverbs 22:6
I reflect on this verse and see how my countrymen and women have voted for fiscal irresponsibility, and not only preservation of abortion but the forcing of everyone to pay for that evil and I must conclude that several past generations of parents in the United States have FAILED in their duties as parents. Under their and their children’s watch the culture of death grew.
More recently a FEW parents have recognized the failures of the majority and have turned counter-cultural and done a better job and yet the use of artificial and chemical birth control is rampant, and abortion has not ceased.
Taking the evidence as a whole I would say that as a culture we are not following this admonition from scripture very well.
Dear Lord, please forgive us for our failures to be faithful to Your teachings. Please help those who were not raised right to come to you and be taught the right path. Please help those who are parenting the next generation to do a better job teaching the Culture of Life than those who went before. +Amen.
