A Plea from an Echo Boomer
In her article "More Than Teacups...a Plea for Biblical Literacy," Megan Gariss practically begs the older generations to teach the twenty-somethings (and younger?) how to study the Bible. I wept when I read it. We have failed these young people, and they know it. I so appreciated her humble request. I didn't detect any bitterness on her part, only an almost-desperate plea for us "olders" to do what we should already have been doing. (I think that's what Jesus would call "making disciples.") We parents must take seriously our responsibility to disciple...starting first with our own children (and granddies). I believe the Lord will not ask us how many folks we won to the Lord "out there" before He asks if we made disciples of our own little ones. Sobering.
