A Wicked Generation

Proverbs 30:20-22

14 There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men.

15 The horseleach hath two daughters, crying, Give, give. There are three things that are never satisfied, yea, four things say not, It is enough:

16 The grave; and the barren womb; the earth that is not filled with water; and the fire that saith not, It is enough.

17 The eye that mocketh at his father, and despiseth to obey his mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out, and the young eagles shall eat it.

18 There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not:

19 The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid.

20 Such is the way of an adulterous woman; she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith, I have done no wickedness.

I am watching a generation arise that is like nothing I have ever seen before. They mock the poor, they are never satisfied, they cheat steal and lie for momentary gain. They do not listen to their elders instead choosing to walk a path of destruction. How did we come to this? The answer is simple, the generations before them have failed. We were supposed to teach them to love and obey the word of God. To listen and respect their elders. Instead, we chose to let them learn from video games and television. We did not even care to check and see what they were watching and playing. We only cared that they was leaving us alone. It became easier to have our sons and daughters glued to a screen so we could finish our daily tasks. It would have taken us longer, but we should have had them with us, teaching them how to work. We become afraid to take a crying child into church over fear we would be judged for disrupting service. They needed that teaching so they could learn to walk with Jesus. This generation has wiped its mouth and claim no wrong doing only because they were never taught their actions were wrong. They shoulder the fault of their actions, but the generations of parents and guardians before them shoulder it as well.
