I think any kid in any generation could be the “Me” kid. But this fast-paced world makes it seem as if it’s really that generation of children we’re seeing raised and raising.
But I disagree. In any generation the Me kid could be raised. All it takes is:
1. Lack of attention
2. Lack of discipline (no—I’m not speaking of the rod)
3. Lack of “No”
I will not say Lack of Love—because I don’t necessarily think that’s true…
But if we take the time to teach our children that there is great joy in giving and serving others—-that Generation Me becomes the beautiful Generation We.
We are the world…
We are the children.
We are the ones to make a brighter day—so let’s start giving!
I sang this as a child—the same age my daughter is today–and I pray that as she goes through each day of her life, she remembers that it truly is all about giving!
Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:10
