The Donut Shop

The Donut Shop

A worker at a donut shop was given a job.  He was to sell donuts to anyone

who asked and payed properly.  He was never to allow thieves to have access

to the donuts.

Everyday a police officer came in to the donut shop to buy donuts.  One day

the police officer built up a bit too much pride in his authority and

stated, "I'm a police officer authority figure in the community and I am

going to take all the donuts out of this shop without payment.  I don't want

you to tell the boss about my actions."

Should the donut shop worker give in and give this authority figure access

to the donuts without payment and not telling the boss?  The donut shop

worker obviously has his flaws and weaknesses but he still would like to

remain a light in the community.

A parent who has the physical ability to educate his own child was given a

job.  He was to teach and serve truth to any child who asked and needed.  He

was never to allow theives to have access to the children to teach the child

lies or leave the child to him self.

Everyday the parent used resources from the public and surrounding community

environment to help educate the child.  One day a public authority built up

a bit too much pride in his authority and stated, "I am a public social

worker and I am going to take the children out of your hands for a few hours

each day so he can socialize with others who believe that smoking is ok,

drinking is ok, stealing is ok, abortion is ok and anti-semitism is normal. 

We're going to leave the child by himself in a school desk and experiment

to see if he will choose good or evil and we are not going to give him access to the book that explains clearly how to choose the good and not the evil.  I don't want you to call the creator

of this universe about this and tell him that I am doing this."

Should the parent give in and give this authority figure access to the child

without payment and not telling the boss?  The parent worker obviously has

his flaws and weaknesses but he still would like to remain a light in the

community.

There is a book that shows us how to teach our children to choose good and

not evil.  It is the bible. 

We as parents are required by our creator to train up a child in the way he

should go.  If we leave the children to themselves they will more than

likely give into the evil and fall for it.  Especially if they are

surrounded by untruths.  A daughter will fall for the friends that claim

that living a slutty prostitute life is good and serving money rather than

God is more important.  A son will fall for the idea that using others

rather than serving others will give him joy in life.  Ultimately the child

will believe that destroying the next generation via abortion or destroying

the generation before will benefit society and themselves.

So the question remains, does being a Christian light in the community mean

that we give in to authorities who are clearly disobeying God's authority

help us to further God's light of truth?  The clear and resounding answer is

no and it will remain that way.  We are to die to ourselves and put our

children first and serve the generation that came before us.  We are lights

when we serve the community NOT when we give in to it.
