This is heartbreaking for just about every Christian parent. We raise our kids to know about God. We talk about Him. But after they graduate from high school, many don’t want anything to do with the church. Why? First, and the most important, the Holy Spirit hasn’t called them yet. But there may be some other reasons. Maybe they haven’t been called because we didn’t actually teach and live out the Gospel in front of them. Did we give them the tools they needed to defend their faith? Or, maybe they never really attended church because they were always in kids’ church? Well, don’t give up. Seeds were planted. Pray the Holy Spirit will make them grow. And, in the meantime, keep encouraging them.
