Lent – Monday – April 11

Psalm 119:9

“How can young people keep their ways pure?” the Psalmist asks. It’s a very good question. When you stop and consider all the ways there are for young people to go wrong, it’s a wonder any of them goes right. Yet what young people seek is no different than what any of us seeks. They want to know that they belong, that they matter to someone, that they are loved. They want to make a significant contribution to the human family. What they need to know is that they are children of God. They do belong. They do matter. They are loved. Bring them into God’s family. Make them full members of the household of faith. Give them something important to do. And you will have them forever.
Lord, help us see the young people with your eyes and love them with your heart. Amen.
