Kids Giving Pat Answers
A few nights ago, our family had Jesse and Megan Oakes over for dinner. Jesse is one of our youth pastors at Lake Avenue Church and were in the middle of a February teaching series on Love, Sex, and Dating.
Jesse was leading a small group of ninth grade boys and in an effort to help students think about how they are Gods masterpieces, Jesse asked those guys what they had that was most valuable. The first kid who answered said, I know what you want me to say: its my virginity, right? So that was the answer he gave.
The rest of the small group gave their answers then, which ranged from their camera to their computer to their collectibles. After hearing a few of his friends answers, the first boy said, Wait, so I dont have to say its my virginity?
How many of our kids are just waiting to give us pat answers answers that they think we want them to hear. Lets push them a bit further to really think and tell us what they really think.
