"He also opens their ear to instruction,
And commands that they turn from iniquity."
~ Job 36:10 (NKJV)
Do you know someone who is in need of some tough love?
Do you feel you don't know where else to turn?
Within the United States of America, statistical reports invariably reveal that the US judicial system is failing when it comes to rehabilitation. Primarily, the demographic Black and Hispanic communities are suffering the most. Families within these communities are consistently being torn apart.
According to a report conducted by justicepolicy.org, in 2003, "African Americans and Latinos represent about 7 out of 10 prisoners in Texas." Additionally, "There are more African American men of all ages in prison in Texas (66,300) than in the Texas higher education system (40,800)"(http://www.justicepolicy.org/images/upload/05-02_rep_txraceimprisonment_ac-rd.pdf).
7 If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons;
for what son is there whom a father does not chasten?
8 But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers,
then you are illegitimate and not sons.
9 Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect.
Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live?
10 For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them,
but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness.
11 Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful;
nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness
to those who have been trained by it."
~ Hebrews 12:5-11 (NKJV)
The solution comes in the form of discipline rooted in the love of our Creator God. There is discipline that only punishes, wounds, and then leaves traumatic emotional scars. However, there is also discipline that not only holds one accountable for the crime (sin), but also comes alongside the offender with the love of Jesus Christ, to pick him up out of the pit, and help him find achievable, corrective actions that lead to a more productive, enriched path of life.
At Musar Mentoring, we use practical life enrichment methods, guided by principles found in the Word of God, the Creator's instruction manual for life.
Our goal is to do our part to not only help rehabilitate young men of color, but to enrich their lives by helping them discover their own self-worth and value.
