Seduced

  Today as I was talking to my teens I realized the influence of Satan and his army of demons. The power and hold he has on this young generation is heart wrenching. My heart is grieved daily at the evil that lurks around every corner trying to seduce our kids. Lie after lie is being spread to the point lies are becoming truths. Our kids are becoming desensitized to the debauchery around them My question is what are we really doing as parents to unscramble this slander?

As I was reading Joshua this morning I was deeply touched by chapter one.

There were millions of Israelites this was huge it was no simple task. There was no walkie talkies, vehicle transportation, or media. He would have to lead them across the Jordon and conquer the lands God had promised them. Just think how hard is to get your family dressed and in the car for church on Sunday! He had a few million to move and I’m sure there was a lot of grumbling and complaining Then God tells him to study and meditate on the word day and night so he would be sure to obey everything written in it. Our God is still saying...
