Young man, young lady you are grounded ( a thought on the Bible for young people )

Listen to a thought on the Bible or read it below.

Teens, and pre-teens what are you doing this Summer ? I have an idea of something to do that might you better teens, and pre-teens.
Hi I am Billy David Dickson with a thought on the Bible for young people.
What happens when you get in trouble with your parents, or with anyone who is in charge of you. Perhaps you got in trouble at school, or you came home after your curfew, or you talked back to your folks. What might happen to you.
Well your dad, or mom, or your legal guardian might say those deadly words you are grounded young man, young lady. What if I encouraged you to go get grounded this Summer.
No, I am not talking about a punishment. I am talking about getting closer to God, by becoming spirituality grounded.
The Bible in the book of James says ( James 4:8English Standard Version )
“Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.”
So how do we draw near to God, or get grounded in spiritual things.
First off we spend time in the Bible. God’s book not onły tells us what behavior is wrong. It also tells us what to do when we do wrong.Just like a football team needs to read and follow their playbook. We need to follow the playbook for life,which is the Bible.
Then we need to talk to God daily. It is called prayer. You, or I would not go a day without talking to our friends.Same goes for our relationship with the Savior.
We also should tell others about having a relationship with God, by putting one’s faith in Christ.Too many folks are trying to get right with God, and get into heaven by doing good works. It doesn’t matter if we are doing Catholic works, or Protestant works, or Jewish works they won’t make us right with the Lord, or get us into heaven when our life here on earth ends.
So to be grounded in a good way we need to spend time in the Bible, we need to talk to God, and we need to tell others about their need for a relationship with God by way of Jesus.
Ok young friends go get grounded. It is a cool thing.
That is a thought on the Bible for young people.
Until next time,
I’m Billy David Dickson
