Will it save lives?
cold spring has the problem of parents supplying alcohol to children,especially recently!parents think its ok on prom or graduation!alcohol kills,stop giving it to kids!maybe the real cops will do something since cold spring lets the families from here go!
This devotional comes from Proverbs 31 Ministries:"Has God ever hurt your feelings? Are we content in every situation? Asking why is perfectly normal. Asking why isn't unspiritual. However, if asking the why question pushes us farther from God rather than drawing us closer to Him, it is the wrong question. Too often we tend to question God:
*Why did this happen?
*Why didn't You stop this, God?
*Why weren't my prayers answered?
*Why am I alone?
*Why did this happen today of all days?!
In most situations, nothing positive can come from whatever answer there might be to a why question. Even if God gave us His reason why, we would judge Him. And His reasons, from our limited perspective, would always fall short. That's because our flat human perceptions simply can't process God's multidimensional, eternal reason."
.....Isaiah 55:8-9: "For my thought are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the Lord. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thought than your thoughts."
"If asking the why question doesn't offer hope what will? The WHAT question. In other words: Now that this is my reality, WHAT am I supposed to do with it? So, when God hurts your feelings, don't ask why....ask WHAT? For example, ask God the following questions:
*WHAT do You want me to with what has happened?
*WHAT can I learn from this?
*WHAT part of this is for my protection?
*WHAT other opportunities could God be providing?
*WHAT maturity could God be building into me?
hasn't done a thing to reduce deaths yet?? so whats the point...give cops more excuses to pull over the kids who are following all other laws at night and rake in revenue from fines oink oink MN...
Let's face it. If it gets to the point where a cop has to pull a kid over driving too late with too many passengers in the car, then someplace, somewhere, a parent has failed to do their job of parenting. Kids can be sneaky, that is why parents need to communicate with each other and their children to make sure everyone is on the same page. It can go a long ways towards keeping something like this (and the rollover in SE MN) from happening. Just because the laws exist doesn't mean it is up to only members of the law enforcement community to uphold them. I speak from experience. I have a 19 yr old daughter and a soon to be 14 year old son.
It is a well known fact that driving is a privilege, not a right. Perhaps the seriousness of that privilege is more than most teen drivers (and many of their parents) can live up to. In an age where government is becoming more and more involved in individuals rights, maybe it's time to move up the legal driving age. I wouldn't have a problem with waiting until age 20 for a permit and making it a two year requirement before you can take your first drivers license examination. I say that because it not only saves many motorists on the road the dangers of dealing with inexperienced drivers. It also saves them from many of the irresponsible parents in charge of these inexperienced drivers.
