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 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 the blame). Some young men have no regard for the value of human life. They will grab a gun and battle over a few dollars or their so called interpretation of “respect.” All day long they hang with their buddies in the streets adding no value to the community; but certainly 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, you don’t have to 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 pit falls of life that have trapped so many (Ecclesiastes 12:1; Proverbs 3:1-26, 4:20-27, 6:20-35, 7:1-27, 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).
