Far too many of our young men are wasting their lives away. They will get a girl pregnant and take no responsibility (of course the girl shares some of the blame as well). There are young men who have no interest in getting a job because they find it too convenient to stay home and live off the parents (and here is where parents share some of the blame). Some young men have no regard for the value of human life. They will grab a gun and have a battle over a few dollars or their so called interpretation of “respect.”
All day long they hang with their buddies in the streets adding nothing of value for the community, but they certainly are doing a great job making it look bad with their use of profanity, drinking, and loud music. Such conduct is a total waste of human life and embarrassment for the parents that raised them (Proverbs 10:1).
Young man don't waste your life away! You also don't need low-life people as friends. What you need is God. With Him you can learn the correct way to live and avoid the pitfalls of life that have trapped so many (Ecclesiastes 12:1; Prov. 3:1-26; Prov. 4:20-27; Prov. 6:20-35; Prov. 7:1-27; Prov. 10:1). Young man, with the help of God, you can turn your back on wrong doing (Prov. 4:10-19; Titus 2:6-8; 2 Timothy 2:22; Prov. 1:10-19; Joshua 24:15; Prov. 13:1; Psalm 34:12-17.; Philippians 4:13).
Feel free to make copies of this to pass on to some young man walking in darkness.
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
