What’s wrong with today’s younger generations?
I hear that question all the time. Especially from my fellow Baby Boomers.
The quick answer?
Nothing is wrong with the current and upcoming generations that hasn’t been wrong with every previous generation.
With one possible exception. They don’t have the elders and mentors that almost every previous generation before them has had.
And why is that? Because (I hate to say it) my generation of Boomers is not discipling the next generation as well as previous generations did for us.
Boomers, It’s Time to Become Elders
If you, like me, are a Christian and a Boomer (born between 1946 and 1964) you need to know that our primary mission at this stage of our lives is to become the elders and equippers that every generation of the church always needs.
Instead, too many of us stand back, cross our arms and complain that Millennials are entitled, they’re lazy, they’re loud, they’re (insert your complaint here…on second thought, don’t).
