Read 1 Corinthians 9:24-27What words would you use to describe our society?Materialistic, sensual, impatient, indulgent, undisci-plined--these are just a few. We're also a "have it now"culture. Satan specializes in presenting us with oppor-tunities for instant gratification while promising us that indulging our appetites will bring us the satis-faction we seek.Human appetites, in themselves, are not sinful. In fact, they're God-given. However, because of ourfleshly weaknesses, they need to be controlled. When our appetites rule us, we're in trouble. Paul likenedthe Christian life to that of athletes who are so focused on winning the race that they exercise self-controlin every area of their lives.That's exactly how we're called to live, yet we lack the motivation, determination, and power to do soin our own strength. For this reason, we need to rely on the Holy Spirit within us. If we yield our lives toHim and step out in obedience to His promptings, we'll have the strength to say no when fleshly desiresfeel overpowering (Gal. 5:16).Another key to success is keeping our focus on the eternal instead of the temporal. Many decisionsthat seem mundane are in fact spiritually significant. Are you indulging an appetite that could result inthe sacrifice of an imperishable reward in heaven?When the Enemy tempts us, he always tries to keep our attention on our desire and the pleasure of in-dulgence rather than on the eternal rewards and blessings we're forfeiting. Just remind yourself howquickly immediate gratification wanes and how long eternity lasts.

themselves, that would equate tobetter work in the classroom thushaving higher standardized testscores. This may be good in theorybut it has had a negative effect onour children.First, they did not distinguishbetween self-concept and self-es-teem. Many use these term inter-changeably but there is adifference. Secondly, they falsifiedthe children’s self-concept. No mat-ter the quality of work that wasdone, the adults told the childrenthey had done well. This beganover 25 years ago on the WestCoast and has now spread acrossour nation.Our children are growing up notknowing what a “good job” really is.I have witnessed these changesover the course of my educationalcareer. There are ways of combat-ing this situation we now find our-selves in but it will take everyone’sefforts to do so. As adults, we owe it to our chil-dren and ourselves to raise and ed-ucate our children so they can trulybe successful in their lifetimes./s/ Gale PattersonWall, SDLetter to the Editor,The way we raise and educateour children is important to every-one in our community, state andnation. If effects the youngest childto the most elderly person.It is obvious how it effects chil-dren, but doe it effect the rest of us? As the saying goes, “Our childrenare our future.” What and how ourchildren learn will have a lastingeffect on them for the rest of theirlives. They will become our futuredoctors, teachers, service providers,etc. How well our future leadersare developed will developed willdetermine the quality of life we allwill have.I have no doubt most every par-ent and educator wants the best forour young people. What is best forthem may be the real question wemust ask ourselves. About 30 years ago some well in-tended but miss guided people,came up with a plan to elevate thisnation’s test scores to better com-pete with other industrial nationsaround the globe.Their plan was to raise everychild’s self-esteem.
