You've probably seen the video of three middle school kids verbally abusing and bullying an older woman who was a bus monitor in such a cold and cruel fashion that one is left wondering what's next?
Paul called it a long time ago when he prophesied that there would be a ground swell of young, godless, lawless, selfish packs of feral youth who would terrorize their communities. This is a growing reality in many places and your kid's bus is probably one of them.
"But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self...boastful, arrogant...disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God," Paul 2, Timothy 3:3-4.
In elementary school my son has been threatened, bullied, hit, chased, verbally terrorized and had a knife pulled on him. This year he heads to middle school. Stuff like this video shows infuriates and frightens me.
How do we, as a families and community, effectively deal with the rising ugliness we see in our neighborhoods, schools and homes?
