Wednesday's Word - Where do kids get these crazy ideas?

This week's word starts with 'The Shema' (pronounced Shuh-'Ma)
Deuteronomy 6:4
The four Hebrew words "YHVH eloheinu YHVH ehad" literally mean "YHVH our God YHVH one." but focuses on verse 7

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: 5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. 6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: 7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

For us older heads.....remember when we saw Michael Jackson do the
moonwalk on Motown's 25th anniversay special, and that's pretty much all
we talked about and tried to imitate at school the next day?.....yeah, I
know; embarrassing to remember, but kids are still pretty much the same
way today, only they're not talking about and imitating simple dance
moves. They're influenced by a steady stream of darker themes.

(Not a suggestion, just info in support of the topic) A guy named Doug
Copeland wrote a book called 'Life after God' about the first generation
to grow up with absolutely 'no knowledge' of God. Point is, it's such a
dis-service to that generation because of all those internal questions
that recieve no answer. Our hearts were made to beat according to God's
good pleasure and nothing else will do.


A recent poll of children as to what is the best and worst things in life,
has produced some 'telling' results; see here. The best and the worst things
(in order)

**** BEST*****
1. Being a Celebrity 2. Good Looks 3. Being Rich
4. Being Healthy 5. Pop Music 6. Families
7. Friends 8. Nice Food 9.Watching Films
10. Heaven/God

****WORST*****

1. Killing People 2. Wars 3. Drunk People 4. Bullies
5. Illness 6. Smoking 7. Stealing 8. Divorce
9. Being Fat 10. Dying

Looks like the babysitter's raising the children....you know the
babysitter, some refer to it as the television or maybe just by some
people not standing up for the God they know.
