1 Timothy 4:12 Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity
INSPIRATION: When we are young, people often don’t take us seriously. It can be frustrating, especially if people are telling you to act like an adult and yet you are treated like a child. Here we see Paul encouraging Timothy to be an example. Instead of dwelling on the disadvantage of youth, focus on being worthy of being looked up to. Focus on maturing spiritually. Let your words and conversation reflect Christ. Pray that your character will reflect Christ, and above all, have faith in God.
PRAYER: LORD, help me to have character that resembles You. Strengthen my faith in You, LORD. Help me to be content with any age and the stage of life I am in. Help me to do what I can do instead of focusing on what I can’t do. conform and shape me into who You want me to be. Above all, I want to please You. I want to do Your will and live for You. Give me wisdom and insight to do so, and lead me by Your Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ name
