You can be Fishers of Mankind.
You are but a child and you are attempting to see what the older sibling (brother in this case) is doing. You can hear him laughing with his friends. You know that he is doing something he has to hide from mother but he doesn't want you to have any part of it! You can smell smoke! As the evening goes on your brother gets louder and louder until mom and dad are coming home. And about that time the friends all leave and he comes in and tells you in a gruff voice (which is not like him at all), that you can't ever tell the folks what he has been doing. If you do, you will be dealt with!!!
Time goes by and the brother has these little parties every time mom and dad are gone, and this night somebody stumbles into your room. Some dude that is having a very hard time standing up so he falls over into your brothers desk, hits his head, and is out like a light. What do you do? First of all you are just a kid, so do you call 911? Maybe, but how do you explain what happened to him? So you go out to tell your brother and the first thing he does is yell at you to go back to the room until you do. Then you go over to the kid and kick his foot and jump back, but nothing happened. So you go up and shake his shoulder and tell him to get up and nothing, no response.
Now it's been ten minutes and you go back out to your brother, and you yell over him yelling at you not to be there, that his buddy is laying dead on the floor and he really should come and see. He is too out of it to understand you but, his other buddy noticed that one of them is missing. So he gets up like he's going to the bathroom and stumbles in to the room to find out what you said is true and bursts out laughing. He comes back out saying 'hey man you got'a check this out, your buddy is layin' all stretched out, and dude he ain't movin'.' Now your brother comes in and shakes him and he is not moving.
Now your brother goes out to the kitchen and calls 911. Your mom and dad come home about five minutes later and the other friends of your brother are trying to get out of the house unnoticed. What is the question here? How did it get to this place? Are you as the younger sibling responsible?
The question: Why did your older brother take this path when he knew better? Answer: he let himself be a part of something he thought he couldn't live without (friendship).
Deuteronomy 13:6-8 - 6 If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers; 7 Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth; 8 Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him:
How did it get to this place? Your brother knew, he had been taught, he knew! He started down a road that was the wrong road yet he kept going. He started to stop a bunch of times, he started to turn around but his friends like to come over and watch sex movies and do the kind of things they could never do at their own homes. They in their own innocent enough ways simply guided him, (as his buddies), down a road that from this point can put him in big trouble with the law.
And you as the younger sibling have only to make decisions on the information you are sure of. You couldn't tell your older brother/sister what to do, they simply will not listen even if you do. After all they have been here... a lot longer than you. So the ball falls in their court, except that your first thought was to call 911 and it was the right choice in this particular situation. On the other hand if you had shook his shoulder and he responded somehow then you had made the right choice to tell you brother. He is the one that had received the heavier burden, and be glad, because we every one of us get our own chance to make the wrong choice at just the right time.
Tell them no to drugs, no to sex outside of marriage, no to the want of things even you know you should not have. Listen to your heart when it says this or that is not the right thing to do. And as you grow up, your parents have already been down a lot of the roads that can lead us into bad situations, listen to them. They will not normally expect you to be robots of their selves, but they will expect you to make good decisions on the information they have given you.
Job 6:14 - To him that is afflicted pity should be shewed from his friend; but he forsaketh the fear of the Almighty.
Job 6:22-30 - 24 Teach me, and I will hold my tongue: and cause me to understand wherein I have erred. 25 How forcible are right words! but what doth your arguing reprove? 26 Do ye imagine to reprove words, and the speeches of one that is desperate, which are as wind? 27 Yea, ye overwhelm the fatherless, and ye dig a pit for your friend. 28 Now therefore be content, look upon me; for it is evident unto you if I lie. 29 Return, I pray you, let it not be iniquity; yea, return again, my righteousness is in it. 30 Is there iniquity in my tongue? cannot my taste discern perverse things?
Psalms 41:9&10 - 9 Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me. 10 But thou, O LORD, be merciful unto me, and raise me up, that I may requite them.
Proverbs 6:2&3 - 2 Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth. 3 Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, when thou art come into the hand of thy friend; go, humble thyself, and make sure thy friend.
Proverbs 27:6 - Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.
Luke 16:22&23 - 19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: 20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, 21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; 23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
James 4:2-4 - 2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. 3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. 4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
Revelation 20:10 - 10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
