Community playground burns

wpmt-mount-joy-playground-fire-9-28-2012,0,273751.story

When I hear this sort of senseless crime, I pray for those involved. Two teens doing such a senseless thing brings severe injury and heartache to themselves, their family and friends. The children of the community lose their playground and wonder why anyone would do such a terrible thing. Playing with fire brings destruction and heartache. Please pray for these teens as they are in the hospital. One is in critical condition and the other in stable condition. Their lives are changed forever. I pray for their family as they go through this terrible ordeal. My children played in that playground years ago. I wonder why our youth are doing such senseless things. Why would they do this? What can we do to change the direction that so many young people are headed? Christians -what can we do to save our youth from senseless crimes?

  1. Thank you Lyn,
    We must pray.. 2 chronicles 7:1
    Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.

    1. Many have never experienced jail. I think there are many young people who just don’t know what the consequences of their actions will be. Many don’t think before they act. Impulsive and careless behaviors are becoming all too common. I try to teach my students the difference between good and bad choices and what the consequences of their choices will be.

      1. Yes that is a good thing, but I think they do no the consequences, the difference is that that most kids, or people don’t care enough about the consequences, and your right they don’t think about it either

  2. I was away visiting my daughters and 7 granddaughters and grandson. I read the article today. Thanks for sharing. Our eyes must be open to the works of the enemy. It is insane! Evil! The bible speaks of how the end times will be. Heaven help us all. We must stay close to Jesus. God bless your little ones. What a blessing children are. They bring so much joy to us.

    1. I can’t stand hearing about stuff like that! I avoid it becuase it really, really upsets me greatly and I can’t get it out of my mind..sometimes for over a week. I pray, “Lord, get this out of my mi nd!” But it stays there..images of what probably happened. It’s awful. It really disturbs me.

  3. I know what you mean. I am the same way. It is because we love children so much. This is why God tells us to protect our minds. I try not to watch TV or the news too much because of it. Let’s focus on the good news and pray for the children and those who need to know Christ. I can only imagine how the Lord must grieve over the human race’s sinfulness. God bless your day today Lyn.
