My daughter, Kerry sent me an email a while ago that included an attachment ... you know, those things we get from so many people. This one was different though … she prefaced it with “Thanks Dad.” The title of the attachment: “Drug Problem”
I had a drug problem when I was young. I was drug to church on Sunday morning. I was drug to church for weddings and funerals. I was drug to family reunions no matter the weather. I was drug to the bus stop to go to school every weekday. I was drug by my ears when I was disrespectful to adults and teachers. I was also drug to the woodshed when I disobeyed my parents.
Those drugs are still in my veins; and they affect my behavior in every thing I do, say, and think. They are stronger than cocaine, crack, or heroin, and if today’s children had this kind of drug problem, America might be a better place...Read full sermon here.
