It seems to be a youth worker’s favorite past time to complain about the state of our students. We work so hard to put together a ministry that is relevant, meaningful, and deep, only to experience that they could care less. In fact, it actually seems like they don’t even care about anything. They are apathetic, selfish and entitled.
If not a moment too soon, Thanksgiving is this week and this is the perfect opportunity for us to teach on the topic of thankfulness. Because of the sorry state of our students, there could not be a more relevant and important topic.
Except for one important point . . .
This lesson on thankfulness is not a lesson that only our students need to hear.
