Never Too Young

So you’re young. So you’re inexperienced. So you’re not ready.

You can do great things.

God doesn’t use the ready and experienced to do great things — He uses the faithful. “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity” (1 Timothy 4:12).

Timothy says it straight here: “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young.” When people say you aren’t old enough, smart enough or experienced enough, don’t let them! Instead, set an example for people of all ages to follow in the way that you talk, act, love and believe.

God doesn’t care about your age, He cares about your faith.

  • How can you set an example for people in your life, no matter the age?
