Today’s Prompt: Think about an event you’ve attended and loved. Your hometown’s annual fair. That life-changing music festival. A conference that shifted your worldview. Imagine you’re told it will be cancelled forever or taken over by an evil corporate force.
Many years have gone by since I attended, but many still do. Bill Gothard’s Basic Youth Conflict Seminars. Why do I remember? I couldn’t afford to attend, but a friend of a friend paid my way. I needed to be there and would like to return, even if I’m almost sixty. These can’t stop!
The seminar message explains the seven commands of Christ: God’s design for our lives, living under God’s authority and those in authority over us, our responsibilities, forgiving others, giving our personal rights to him, allowing the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us, and keeping his commandments. These are important for all of the youth of today to learn. Don’t stop these! Think of all who can learn. If you don’t want to be there, at least allow others to be there. It changed my life, it could change theirs.
