I’ve devoted my life to the proposition that there is greatness in the next generation. But yesterday I posted a question that perplexes me to Facebook and got 42 comments.

I’m wondering why my children’s generation
struggles so to commit to anything difficult for very long. Where did
that come from?

 
Some of the people making comments questioned the validity of the question. But most agreed that it is an issue. Greg noted that Relevant magazine has picked up on the phenomenon in this article.
 
Mark observed, “Our generation has created an age of skepticism. We have taught our
kids to be critical, independent thinkers. They don’t trust much, most
of all themselves.” He further noted, “This generation has never had to fight a
visible, common enemy.”
The comments from the 20-somethings were most interesting.
 
Laura said, “Probably because we have never been taught that we had to.”
 
Michelle postulated, “Too many options? grass is greener mentality?”
 
Katie said, “My main thoughts are that we have huge desires to change the
world…but with the societal influences of too many options and too
many distractions, we find it hard to discern our God-given dreams &
calling and how we are best BUILT to change the world…”
 
So, what do you think?
