“I am a loser. No one likes me. The world is better off
without me.” Countless teenagers believe these negative thoughts. Students may
be surrounded by their peers and yet feel completely alone – like no one would
notice if they disappeared.
I don’t know about you, but it breaks my heart to think of
children and teens who feel like no one cares. Feeling sad for these kids is
not enough. It is time we take action.
What can you do to make a difference?
If it takes a village to raise a child, then surely it must
take a Kingdom to raise teenagers who love the Lord. Leave a comment to share
how you are making a difference in the life of a teen.
- Consider mentoring a student
- Volunteer to work with students
at church, YMCA or other civic organizations
- Be intentional to get to know
your friends children. Show them you care.
- If you have a teenager, get to
know their friends.
- Go to sporting events or plays
to support youth you know and to show you care.
- Commit to pray daily for
students in local schools.
