In looking at the passage, we must understand that everyone has a situation or burden that they might be carrying. So we can never forget: Although situations may seem impossible for us, God can make all things possible.
Every young person may not grow up the same way. But the components of building our youth into great leaders of tomorrow are the same, and those components can be found in God's word.

One of the first things we need to do as we ask the Lord to open our eyes as we interact with our youth of this generation is we should be instructing them that they are at war, because they're not battling against flesh and blood (people). It's much bigger than that.

What God requires from us in worship is so good, fair and irreproachable that we have no basis for failing to comply.
