Parent Minute

Are we givers or takers?

Posted on 9/6/2016 by Greg Yoder

Our culture is changing. Rather than people aspiring to achieve the “American dream,” many want the “American handout.” Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for helping the needy, but what about those who just keep asking? Are we raising our kids today to think they’re owed everything? Giving is important. Frankly, I struggle. When I see somebody with a sign that says, “Will work for food,” I’m skeptical. Is it affecting our kids? I’m not saying we should give these people money, but are we compassionate? Do we try to help—investing our time and effort to see they eat, taking them to a shelter where they can get help, or actually going to those in need and helping by serving? I stand here convicted. You?
