It is now a regarded as a norm to be outrightly rude in the name of being assertive. Long gone are the days when a sizeable proportion of the young revere the old as a sign of respect for age. It is not uncommon to see young folks slandering and bad-mouthing the elderly all in the name of having fun,an instance being the story of an american bus monitor who was bullied by some school kids on a bus trip home from school. The aberrational social vices are now the celebrated social practices among quite a number of the young ones.Criticize talks about smoking,drinking and sexual immorality, you’d probably be told it’s no big deal!
The question is,where did it all go wrong?From home, at school or the personal disposition of the young folks themselves?These amongst many other should be the questions running through the mind of whoever is genuinely concerned about this present anomaly.
If I were asked to proffer a solution, I would say,let’s turn back to God with all our hearts and minds and lets see things take the turn of good havens.
”Then if my people who are called by name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.”
2 Chronicles 7:14 (NLT)
