Learning new stuff is hard work! As a matter of fact, it may be the hardest thing in life – learning. Sometimes learning new things means having to unlearn old stuff. It’s a huge challenge. As a matter of fact, it requires emotional work, mental stretching, sometimes considerable financial investment, and sometimes the sacrifice seems to outweigh the long term benefit. With all said, there are some things that are just worth learning. The risk of not learning it weighs far greater than the alternative. This is the reality of life. In many cases, the question is, are you willing to take the risk and invest the sweat equity to make it happen?
Reaching our children and successive generations is one of those realities that are worth the risk. Not learning how to ‘reach’ our young people has the risk of successive generations not having the metal toughness to handle what life delivers. Not reaching our children runs the risk of being ignorant about the realness of God, the handiwork of God, and even the unfailing love of God. Not reaching our ‘blessings from God’ runs the absolute risk that integrity, moral living would be diminished, righteous standards would be lowered and erased, and common sense (however you define it) would be desecrated. All hopes of a civil society, powerful families, ethical government, neighborly love, and genuine concern of people would all but become figments of our imagination.
