All of us know somebody who’s been affected by drug addiction. Some are good at hiding it. Others aren’t. The deeper they get into it the deeper the problems. Financial issues, physical decline, and deceit are compounded. I know a family where the dad left his wife for the woman supplying his drug habit, hasn’t seen his kids in weeks, and can’t stop lying to his concerned parents. What do we do? As Christian parents all we can do is pray and love. But don’t enable. Sometimes getting arrested can be the best thing that can happen to them. If they’re followers of Christ remember Philippines 1:6 “He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion.” If they’re not, pray the Holy Spirit works in their heart.
