Integrity is the glue that holds our way of life together. What our young people want to see in their elders is integrity, honesty, truthfulness, and faith. What they hate most of all is hypocrisy and phoniness. That is why it is important for us to go to church, to read the Bible, and to say grace at the table. Let them see us doing what we would like them to do.

Listen to this 13-minute Billy Graham sermon about integrity.

Prayer for the day

Take away the “front,” Father, that so often creeps into my life. I would live in such a way that young people will be drawn to You, too.

    Joe is right Thomas, stay strong in the Lord and the Holy Spirit will continue to work through you and touch so many and the ones that keep being disobediant will learn too. For some , the closest thing to the bible is our lives so we must continue to be strong and show the right way

  5. Rita Frazer says:

    Would love to receive your daily devotions!

  6. Joe says:

    Amen. Thomas Christ is not done with you yet. He still needs to work through you. Even if only 1 person can see Christ in you and that moves the person in a positive direction then through God’s grace you allowed Him to work through you. Only if you are able to touch 1 person that is a fantastic thing.

    “Practice what you preach”, is an age old saying. However it is still very valid today. Nonbelievers are watching our actions . In order to set a good example and be of service to God . We must remember who we are in Christ.

    True , we need to be exemplary. tHis means we didnt do our work while this young generation was growing up… hence the gap. Its going to be hard working backwards but by the grace of God we need to do it. thanks for the post

    what is happening in America. I have been an electrician since 3/11/1976, the language by younger and older employees is right out of the sewer and it only gets worse as the day goes along. I accepted Christ as my savior before I was 7 years old. It seems as though no one believes in Christ. Do people not realize that everything we do God knows before we do it? I guess at 57 I’m really tired and I don’t understand why I am still here. I know God loves me, why and I still here.

    1. Sandi says:

      Tom, I know how you feel, the language I hear, especially from our youth, I never heard until I left home and started working, and really it has only been in the last several years that I’ve started hearing it from young people. A lot of reasons. The reason we’re still here is to be the hands, the feet, the voice of Jesus to the lost. Be encouraged brother, let them see your example so you may share the gospel .

    2. Greg D says:

      Yeah, I hear you Tom. Your 57? I’m 64. I was installing security cameras in a middle school several years ago, and the language comings from them kids was unthinkable. Problem is, we’re not allowed to discipline our kids the way you and I were. That’s why prayer for our children is so important, especially in today’s world. Perhaps that’s the reason we’re both still here. To pray. The power of prayer is mightier than the rod.

      I had a coworker during the early 80s & on would cuss & smoke cigarettes, but later on salvation came to his house, & those “activities” ceased for him. Kinda reminds me of 2 Cor. 5:17.
