Being a Christian in today's world is very hard. But do not let that scare you, anything worthwhile is worth working for. Being a Christian can be hard but it can also be fun. That is my objective, through my own stories, stories of my friends and a lot of plagiarism (Just kidding, only a little plagiarism.), I am going to show that you can be a Christian and still have fun!

  Rules for Life!

Charles Sykes is the author of DUMBING DOWN OUR KIDS. He
volunteered for high school and college graduates a list of things they
did not learn in school. In his book, he talks about how feel good,
politically correct garbage has created a generation of kids with no
concept of reality and set them up for failure in the real world. You
may want to share this list with them.

Rule 1: Life is not fair; get used to it.

Rule 2: The world won't care about your self esteem. The world will expect
you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3: You will NOT make 40 thousand dollars a year right out of high
school. You won't be a vice president with a car phone until you earn both.

Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait til you get a boss. He
doesn't have tenure.

Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents
had a different word for burger flipping; they called it opportunity.

Rule 6: If you screw up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine
about your mistakes; learn from them.

Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are
now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes,
and listening to you talk about how cool you are. So before you save the
rain forest from the blood-sucking parasites of your parents' generation,
try delousing the closet in your own room.

Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers but life
has not. In some schools they have abolished failing grades; they will
give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This, of
course, doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off,
and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do
that on your own time.

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people have to leave
the coffee shop and go to jobs.

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.
