Expect More from Young Men – Good Article from Desiring God


What, then, are these young men doing with their lives? According to Hurst, they are playing video games. Leisure time, largely spent playing games on computers and consoles, doubled from the early 2000s to 2015.

When Hurst relayed these statistics to Econtalk Podcast host Russ Roberts, Roberts could scarcely believe the numbers or accept the idea that so many young men would choose to live with their parents, and not work, so that they could play video games.

The author has some great points including citing one of the more overlooked Scriptures from 2 Thessalonians – If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat – meaning if a person chooses not to work then they should be willing to accept the consequences.  The perpetual adolescence of men has been a really strange thing to develop in the United States.

Sometimes the most loving thing we can do for another person is say “No” to them.

    • Yes, at least partially. Someone is feeding the sin in the men with unconditional support. The authors call is that we all stop doing that and expect more – expect what God expects from His men. It is hard but it is good for people.
