I won't be the most popular leader with this post, but at least I'll be honest. A bunch of kids are doing this thing they call 'milk pong'. Funnel, tube, milk... barfing.
1. They replaced beer with milk. While they are not getting drunk, the action is the same. I know that they don't get drunk, but really, what worries me is how good they would do if they did indeed replace the milk with beer. Maybe its the over protective mom, can see the bad things happening before they do thing, not sure.
2. Making yourself throw up is not good. It's not good for your body. God designed bodies that if something it can't tolarate is in it (because its bad) then it comes out one way or another, and usually with a vegenance.
3. ITS WASTEFUL! We send dollars to Africa to give people clean water but we waste milk that could be given away at soup kitchens to parents who need it. Maybe I take this a little too personal because I can remember when we had $30 for groceries for a week. Mac and cheese and corn, for a whole week is what we ate. I can think of times in the last year or two when the budget was tight and I was walking around the store with a calculator because I had to watch the budget. There are so many families who are struggling (families of people I know!), even those who have jobs, who get assistance. Its not always easy, and with the rising cost of groceries, gas, it sounds dumb but it really breaks my heart that there would be such a waste of milk.
We are called to take care of others because we are called to love others.
John 21:16 Again Jesus said, "Simon son of John, do you truly love me?"
He answered, "Yes, Lord, you know that I love you."
Jesus said, "Take care of my sheep."
