You may have heard of reverse mentoring.
It happens when younger folk teach us older people how to do something–usually with technology (because they know more about it).
Today I want to reverse teach–that is, take something that is often hurtful and use its example for good.
A well-known news broadcaster often talks about the negative influence of the “machines” in our modern world. He’s referring primarily to cell phones–which are becoming powerfully addictive.
Let’s flip it around.
Here’s what we can learn from the machines.
When abortion became legal nationwide on January 22, 1973, I was oblivious to Roe v. Wade–being a naive 19 year-old, living in New Zealand and looking for God’s plan for my life.
Soon thereafter, I became educated and burdened. I began to pray against the abortion holocaust and participated in marches in Washington, D.C.–some with upwards of 100,000 in attendance.
Yet, abortion remained the law of the land for decades despite an estimated 60 million babies being slaughtered on the altars of the Sexual Revolution.
That may be about to change.
It’s what we’ve prayed for for 46 years.
