Teacher Prep | Youth & This Session
Ask your students what they are doing for Labor Day. Better yet, ask your students what they will be doing in a couple of weeks. Most of your students won’t be able to answer these questions because they live day-by-day. Our culture has very much moved to a “here and now” and it shows in the lives of our students. One of the effects of this is that many of our students lose hope. They get stuck in the cycle of now and lose perspective. They may hope for things to change, but they want that change to occur immediately. We need to remind our students that they need to be prisoners of hope and not prisoners of the here-and-now.
