by Nancy Campbell at Above Rubies -Zealous or Apathetic?
It grieves my heart to see so many young people from Christian homes who are apathetic toward the things of God. They confess they are Christians, but they have more desire for worldly things than pursuing God. They’d rather watch movies than read God’s Word. In fact, most of them hardly know anything of the Scriptures. They spend every spare moment on their iPod, iPhone, and texting but have little thought for God.
Dearest mothers, what are we doing? It should be our passion, with persistent prayer, to encourage them to be zealous for God. May God save us from raising apathetic, mediocre, and lukewarm young people. May Gold(sic) anoint us by the power of the Holy Spirit to raise sons and daughters who are filled with zeal, who will stand against evil, who will stand up for truth and righteousness, and do mighty acts for God.
