We have all probably heard the song by Whitney Houston Greatest Love Of All. This song made me think about how much we can affect the future and the responsibility we have on the shape of the future. We all affect the future by the things we do, say and so on in a good or bad way. Whether he have kids or grand-kids, we all have at some point been around children whether family, or friends, or even strangers. They watch what we do, and what we say, and our actions can shape who they become. Whitney had it right with these lyrics: I believe the children are our future, teach them well and let them lead the way, show them all the beauty they possess inside, give them a sense of pride, to make it easier, let the children’s laughter, remind us how we used to be, everybody searching for a hero, people need someone to look up to, I never found anyone to fulfill my needs, a lonely place to be so I learned to depend on me.
She wrote this song sharing with us that she never found her hero. Someone maybe looking for someone to look up to and you might be that person on purpose or not on purpose. This is something for us all to think about. Weak families and communities with no direction or guidance, create a weak nation, because families and communities make up the nation. But strong families and communities with direction, and guidance creates a strong nation. So if we want a stronger and better guided nation. Then we need to start building stronger and better families.
Proverbs 22:6 Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.
The greatest love that lives inside of those who believe in Christ is his Holy Spirit.
