The world appears to be watching us, so we have to be unified and put our best foot forward. Here’s the piece that all our youth need to understand:
Roman’s 12:2 tells us, “don’t be conformed to this world.” In other words, we can be in this world, but not of this world. Most people don’t have a clue to what this means. “Of this world,” would apply to using the system of the world. We believe there is a better system to follow and we can still do it by not being “of this world.”
Since I have been in this business, and another business prior to this one, I have always had people telling me “what I should do,” and “where I should go,” this is a better way of doing it.” Why are you doing that”? People are always trying to use their conventional wisdom to guide and direct people toward what they think is a successful outcome. It’s hard to fault those kind of people.
Another way of looking at that same scenario is when people behave this way subconsciously, always trying to get people off their game….off the right tract. Getting them some place where they get stuck. All for the wrong reasons of competition and making money. There came a time when I had to reach inside and learn to think for myself and to be able to use my God given, intuitive instincts to make those important decisions. And to understand that God is not teaching us those strategies that consists of the world, but those spiritual strategies that are much more effective than worldly strategies.
For it is this reason that we feel the West Michigan AIME/Leadership Council is in the right ballgame. We are not following those strategies of the world. Please, I am not saying we can’t get good advice from those people who have accomplished what we are trying to accomplish. But we must understand, in order to be convicted and understand the true principles that govern our choices, we must look intrinsically to our spiritual, intuitive awareness and qualify those truths that help us manage our endeavors and our lives.
We cannot have the older generation quit on the younger generation. It’s their world that they will inherit. We have to give them a better world. We knew this course of action was not going to be easy. However, the effort will be worth it for generations to come.
