I was reminded today, by a post made by a friend of mine on Facebook, just how important it is to teach our children that God always comes first. It seems to me that there are more and more excuses that people in general make, and especially parents, that reflect that God is not truly their first priority. I know that we all will write "God" in that first blank when we strive to enumerate our priorities, but when it comes to actions, how often do we fail? I was reminded of the Parable of the Sower, as I thought about these things this morning. Jesus said that there are some who are the thorny soil. Consider His explanation:

 

Now he who received seed among the thorns is he who hears the word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful. (Matthew 13:22)

As an evangelist, I often have discussions with young people about the relationships that they are involved in, whether it be friendships or dating. As I am now the "old guy" in these discussions, I have often run into disagreements with these young folks. The question often comes up: Is it ok for us to date non-Christians? Unfortunately, when that question comes up, it is usually too late—they are already in such a relationship! I have had disagreements with young people, and also with their parents over this important question. The practice is usually being defended under such premises as:

  • They are in love! How can that not be right?
  • They are going to convert the person they are dating…if not now, after they are married!
  • There aren't any Christians close by to date…
  • They aren't getting serious…
  • They'll be a good influence on those around them…
