If you are over 30 you've probably noticed the fact that sometime between when you were a child and every bad choice had a consequence, and today - consequences seemed to be swept away. I think this is a disservice to young people, and for that matter to adults too. You fail a test - don't worry. Just take it over. You turn a paper in late - don't worry. It will only cost you 10 points off the grade. I see this as a tremendous problem in society. It doesn't prepare young people for reality in the job market, and it doesn't prepare anyone for reality with God. I hear, more and more often, that if God is loving He'll just forget the one requiement to salvation and let everyone in. I think society fostered that ridiculous point of view. So - I'm wondering - how do you feel about setting boundaries and holding to them? Is it more kind to let a kid slide or is it more kind to be firm while they are young?
