“For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy” (2 Timothy 3:2)
This list has been around a long time. These traits are all part of the human rebellion. Ultimately, they speak of our rebellion against our heavenly Father. Begin with yourself and see where the Holy Spirit would have you go to work. Begin there and then see the signs of the age. Yes, in the end times it will not be a good place to be. But until then, live the gift of faith you have been given.
Lord, I easily become caught up in looking out and lamenting the younger generation. Yet has this not been the case since fall of man? I know on the one hand it will come to pass as Your word says, but then, I am also instructed to work out my salvation with fear and trembling knowing that You are at work in me. Lead me to have the right attitude, O Lord, in order that I would walk with You.
Lord Jesus, You did not come into the world to judge it, but that through You all who believe would have everlasting life. Guide me, O Lord, in the way of truth so that I may be guided by You and with the grace I need. Help me to work with Your Holy Spirit so that these rebellious attitudes are not in me. Help me to guide younger ones such that they learn respect and reverence for You. In all things, lead me, Lord. Amen.
