February 3: I see a lot of signs posted when I am out and about suggesting things I need to do. I am reminded of the story of the guy who took 3 weeks to drive across country because he kept seeing “Clean Restrooms” signs. It takes a long time to clean all of those restrooms!
Our young people are surrounded by a lot of “signs” in their world. Some are good and some are not. They struggle with knowing what they should and should not do, between what is God pleasing and what is not. Keeping young people grounded in the word of God can help. Of course, they can and will stray from that at times, but when the foundation is there they have the best chance to come back. A Lutheran school can be a big help to a family for building on that foundation.
