I was sitting in the family room curled up on the couch flipping through channels until I almost dropped the remote after hearing pastor Andy Stanley yelling at me, “Stop scaring the children!” What? Of course I needed to know why he was accusing me this way. He went on to say:
All of you who are 45 and older, look up here. Many of you have lost heart and the reason is–you have fixed your eyes on a political system, and you are growing weary and you need to knock it off! You are scaring the children!
You need to model for the next generation that God is in control; God can be trusted. It’s good to get involved in politics, culture, and society, but never fix your eyes there, instead fix your eyes on Jesus.
Thank you Andy Stanley! You just said what I couldn’t find the words to say.
