What do our kids believe?

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
(Philippians 4:8-9)

What Do Our Kids Really Believe?

A teen/young adult’s life is full of change . . . They question the world . . . faith . . . everything!

yet we all have questions: What are any of us really sure of anyway?

Try making a physical list . . . the sun will rise, the ocean waves will continue to go in and out, God is still God! What else?

What are we unsure of? Will I marry . . . will I graduate . . . will I keep my job . . . will I have children . . . Does God care?

What do we actually control . . . What does God control . . . or need to have control of in our lives?

Does it scare you know a lot of things are out of our control . . . having doubt?

It is OK to have doubts . . .Even John the Baptist had doubts! (Luke 7:18-19)

So how can we be sure . . . how can we trust God?

Read Philippians 4:8-9 again . . .

How can we be sure . . . how can we replace doubt with faith . . .we work at it!!!!

Taking a line from a former NBA player . . . We are talking about PRACTICE!
