"What Matters Most"
Luke 15
Don’t know if you saw the news of the two year old boy that was recently lost in the North Carolina woods. Family, friends, and literally the whole community was looking for him. Two nights of low temperatures and rain and then, on the third day, he was found; cold, hungry, but alive! The family, the friends and the town celebrated. Who wouldn’t? Jesus uses three stories of lost things found to help us understand what matters most. Let's look at how God wants to make sure we have His priorities in “What Matters Most.”
59 percent of young people with a Christian background report that they had or have “dropped out of attending church, after going regularly.” A majority (57 percent) say they are less active in church today compared to when they were age fifteen. Nearly two-fifths (38 percent) say they have gone through a period when they significantly doubted their faith. Another one-third (32 percent) describe a period when they felt like rejecting their parents’ faith. David Kinnaman, You Lost Me
