A lump of soft pliable clay!
It can be molded into anything you wish – such as a vase or a plate.
But soon it will harden and then nothing will have any effect on it
So I must work quickly while it is workable.
A young tender heart!
It too is impressionable. The good and the bad that touches it leaves its mark.
This is the material our Lord wants to work with.
It is during these tender teen years that the Lord can mold them with the fingers of His Holy Word.
But we have a part here also – we have been given a responsibility to the Next Generation –
We are to tell them how much God loves them;
That He keeps His promises.
Tell them what God has done for you,
So that their hope and faith will be in God
And the result will be to prepare them for the future – for this life
And for the life to come.
