Supporting Our Youth

Good Morning Saints!
Last week, as I meditated upon my morning readings, I was touched by the mention of supporting people for who they are and the gifts they bring to the table. Sometimes, out of love and concern, we want to see people we love, especially our children, do great things and achieve excellence. But, one thing we have to keep in mind is that their gifts and excellence may not be on the same scale as what we want for them. We have to remind ourselves that God created everyone--He created them fearfully & wonderfully(Psalm 139:13-14). We have to keep this in mind--make it our mantra--when dealing with people, especially children. Yeah, maybe they are not using the gifts God gave them, but, you know what? Let's remind them of their gifts by giving positive feedback on their accomplishments and providing help when they ask. And, remember, providing help doesn't mean taking over, parents;-) Much love! Get out there and encourage our youth! Blessings!
