Too much time & money. Not enough work. Imho. They could get started on paying & saving for college, a car, etc., instead of poisoning themselves. Sports, volunteering to help the less fortunate if one is independently wealth, which is a shame. The formation earning your own money, paying your own bills provides is priceless. Or, the military is an outstanding option for young people to serve the nation and communities. Better to be killed by enemy fire and die a hero to your country, than a useless moron who wasted their young life and poisoned themselves and destroyed the lives of those who cared and loved you most in this life. May God have mercy on young people and on their foolishness. May He give strength, patience, wisdom, faith, grace, hope, compassion, and gentleness to their guardians.
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom. You shall love the Lord, your God, with your whole mind, heart, and soul. You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is One. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates.” -Deut 6:4-9
I look to the mountains;
from whence comes my help?
My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.
He will not let you fall;
your protector is always awake.
The protector of Israel
never dozes or sleeps.
The Lord will guard you;
he is by your side to protect you.
The sun will not hurt you during the day,
nor the moon during the night.
The Lord will protect you from all danger;
he will keep you safe.
He will protect you as you come and go
now and forever.
