WHERE ARE THE LEADERS?

Today's youth lack good role models. If our youth cannot find role models when they walk out the door into this crazy world, they should be able to at least have role models at home. I am thankful that my parents were good role models to me as child so that I could follow their example. It can become a struggle to stay on the right path when everyone else around you is making bad choices. My peers and I should not have to struggle to find our way in life. We should have good examples whose footsteps we can follow in. We have plenty examples of how to ruin our lives, but we need more examples of how to sustain our lives. Thankfully, I have good examples of role models in my life, but it still becomes difficult at times because I need to be able to relate to individuals my age that are experiencing the same things as myself. Can you imagine a young teen or young adult that has no one to turn too? Recently, I have been making efforts to seek out others that are trying to follow the right path as well. Otherwise, I would not be able to benefit from others and I would not be a benefit to others. To make a difference in society, you have to be out there in society trying to make a difference. You cannot stay confined to your room if you expect to influence others.Once you step out of your comfort zone, you will discover that they are others who experience the same things that you do. You are not alone in what you are going through. Due to the lack of good leaders in the community, many times youth and young adults try to lead one another to the best of their ability. Youth are not properly equipped to lead each other, but they can definitely strengthen one another to strive for the same goals. Our generation need leaders with wisdom, experience, and the patience to work with us through our situations.Parents should be the first leaders in the lives of their children. If you don't lead your children, someone else will. Once you have followed a good example, you should be able to lead accordingly. There is no reason why I can't be the leader that I'm searching for.

  1. Sad to say but most of the leaders are gone awol (Missing in Action),But the youth have to trust God's word in Psalms 27:10-"When my mother and father forsake me, THEN the Lord will take me up." and also we have to strive to be the Leaders ourselves that we are looking for.
