This weekend in the The Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis was one of BULLETS resulting in several wounded and yet another youth DEAD again. As an aspiring politician, I will not use this article to cast blame on a leader or political body or movement. What I will say though, is that until we ALL repent, the shootings and killings will not stop.
In the book of Ezekiel, God used the priest whose name was Ezekiel to constantly teach and warn the people in his time. In Ezekiel 14:6, he warns the people of Israel to REPENT AND TURN FROM IDOLS. I want to suggest here and now, that we are at such a time again.
Many folks tend to think that an idol is a STATUE that a particular island government leader erects as a symbol of POWER. While that may be so, there are many, many, many different idols. Idols are people or things one puts before GOD and stays fully focused on it or them.
Some 21st century idols are whatsapp, facebook, pornography, gambling, shoes, clothes, smart phones, drugs and the big dollar - MONEY. Too many of us stay overly occupied on pursuing such pieces of vanity and let our personal life and health suffer. We let our children and family suffer. We let our direct and indirect relationships suffer. WHY? Simply because too many of us have become self centered, egotistical, non caring beasts and have kicked GOD out of our lives. How sad!
Kindly forgive my harsh words, but it is true! I am usually hated for telling the truth and I don't expect this blog entry to get many likes. That's fine too. Jesus was hated all his life.
Too many of us DO NOT CARE ABOUT ANYONE ELSE BUT OURSELVES anymore. Then we get full of pride and blame the teenagers and youth for reaping havoc and bringing destruction to our world.
While I do not condone any such deviant behaviour from our youth, I honestly believe that if we show more LOVE, CARE and ATTENTION to our children as they grow and to our teenagers as they mature and to our young adults as they seek to find out the right path to take in life, then we would begin to see a CHANGE in every global society.
This will not happen though, if parents and guardians don't seek to develop an early and open relationship with with their children and growing teens. A relationship where both parents, father and mother can talk anything and everything with their child and aim to GUIDE THEM ARIGHT.
You CANNOT try to develop that relationship when your child is twelve or fifteen or seventeen years of age. That relationship must be developed from birth. Can I be plain and frank? Young ladies, children are 20 year projects. If you are not ready for a child, ABSTAIN or use a CONDOM. Don't expect to live a promiscuous life and instantly and immediately become disciplined enough to raise a child, especially when you tell the little boy or man you had sex with that you are PREGNANT and they leave you all alone.
Many times, this is exactly where the CYCLE and CIRCLE of crime and deviant behaviour begins. Children getting pregnant and trying to raise decent and respectable adults. It is very, very, very hard. I must pause here and now though and commend, HIGHLY COMMEND those mothers who did it.
Who or where do many of these boys and girls, born to "child-girls" TURN? They turn to the streets and gangs to raise them and the streets manipulate their young minds, use them and porn them to KILL.
Then, hurting mothers and brothers and sisters whatsapp me at 1-869-661-0118 to make an appointment to print funeral shirts, plan candle light ceremonies and print funeral programs. Although it's part of my KVK business, it grieves my heart to be doing this for so many young men.
Sadly, many of us who can help, by starting small support groups to train and guide and mentor those boys and girls who are in need of SUPPORT and TEACHING and GUIDANCE, brush them all aside as "CHARACTERS" or "GHETTO YOUTH" and continue to live selfish, self centered lives. Then when another murder happens, we call in on the radio and post on social media and blame GOVERNMENTS for crime spiraling out of control when MANY OF US COULD HELP CURB YOUTH from a path of deviant behavior too if we put our hands on deck and work with a SMALL GROUP OF YOUTHS.
In each society and community in every nation on planet earth, every citizen has a role to play to SAVE ITS LAND MASS AND KEEP IT SAFE. None of us is perfect. That is why we all NEED each other to encourage us and brush us up at times and help us get back on the right track when we shift at times. Being selfish and only caring about OURSELVES and OUR FAMILIES alone doesn't do any nation any type of good.
If we say that we are TRULY JESUS FOLLOWERS and a GODLY NATION, we can definitely learn from his example and work to constantly help and impact the lives of others and TEACH THEM THE RIGHT.
In closing, just as Priest Ezekiel warned the Children of Israel, so too I warn us all reading globally. Until we all repent of our selfish, non caring, heartless, egotistical and pride filled attitudes, and work to show LOVE, CARE and ATTENTION to our youths and adults who are HURTING and in need of serious help and hope through support groups, the global shootings and killings will not stop.
Let us ALL consider our ways and help our Prime Ministers and Presidents and Community Leaders around the world all in an effort to SAVE OUR WORLD.
Ezekiel 14:6 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Repent, and turn yourselves from your idols; and turn away your faces from all your abominations
Do something to help! Be Blessed!
