“What Are We Teaching Our Young People”
Today is the U.N.’s declared “International Day of Peace”.
Might you agree that the quickest way to discern what is most important in our lives is to reflect, honestly, on those things we teach our kids and grandkids.
But Do We teach Our Kids Violence?
“My core belief is that principles are taught not so much by words, but by actions of acceptance. If parents and leaders demonstrate “Silent Consent” to any form of abuse, or of oppression, or of violence, that is what we teach.
“We teach the next generation, predominantly our children, by accepting those things that should be actively, and nonviolently resisted, as immutable, and things that cannot be changed.
“However, in all situations, including self and loved-one protection, Jesus clearly teaches His true Followers, active, creative, nonviolent resistance to every form of evil as His only route to success as He continues to live His life out through us!” ~ © gfp ’42™
