Brandon A. Miller: No. We know that youth are investments but that investment isn’t equitable.
We know that youth are investments but that investment isn’t equitable.
This also falls on our parents. Our children’s first line of failure isn’t the school but it’s from the parents or guardians.
We can’t continue to invest when we too are morally, socially, religiously, and economically bankrupt.
Times are changing. Gone are the days in which we point fingers, throw “shade” sip “tea” and brow beat folk on social media. Sitting on a seat of judgement and placing blame everywhere we go.
How about we take up the mantle of encouragement, uplift those we come in contact with. Listen to those with heavy hearts and burdens on their shoulders. Show them a better path to walk, and not force them to do what we think is best. And stop blaming the “man” or someone that wronged you years ago. That crutch, must be thrown to the side…..
You were created for good works, destined for greater things.
And we should encourage each other to settle for no less!
If we find people that push us, encourage us, inspire us
Think of where we can be,
And how we can do the same to others
Along the way
I love dreams….
I encourage goals…
But tell me,
What is your plan?
Without a plan,
Will not go any further
When we forgive, we take a weight off not only our shoulders, but off our spirit.
Yes, to forgive someone is hard, because we remember the transgressions against us. The hurt and pain is fresh and open like an un-healed wound that reminds us constantly.
But then you have to think, as I walk through life daily, and do things that may not be in my character against others, as well as not pleasing to God, He yet forgives me.
Forgiving allows you the opportunity to move forward, and embrace the blessings that were once blocked by the pain and hurt against you by certain situations or others.
