The other day I saw a young girl (about 6 yrs old) wearing a t-shirt that proclaimed: "It's all about me ME ME!"
This young girl is a hedonist in the making.
Little does she know of the prison she is building for herself.
Little does she know of Satan and his cohorts who are all too willing to help her.
The basic idea behind hedonistic thought is that pleasure is the only thing that is good for a person. Hedonism can be conjoined with psychological egoism - where people are motivated only by their self interest.
Isaiah observed this attitude in Israel: "Let us eat drink (and be merry)" you say, "for tomorrow we die!"
How sad that there is a real potential for this child to finish up like this:-
All this only reinforces the importance (and high calling!) of children's outreach in the church.
It was Bill Wilson of Metro Ministries and founder of Kidz Klub that said:
"It iseasier to build boys and girls then to repair men and women".
