1 Timothy 4:12-16
New Living Translation (NLT)
12 Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity. 13 Until I get there, focus on reading the Scriptures to the church, encouraging the believers, and teaching them.
14 Do not neglect the spiritual gift you received through the prophecy spoken over you when the elders of the church laid their hands on you. 15 Give your complete attention to these matters. Throw yourself into your tasks so that everyone will see your progress. 16 Keep a close watch on how you live and on your teaching. Stay true to what is right for the sake of your own salvation and the salvation of those who hear you.
It can be so easy to believe that lie that you are not too young to do great things. But that’s just not true. You ,right now today, have the ability to set an example for EVERYONE in your life. You can make a difference, and you don’t need to wait until you’re older, wiser, or more mature. God will use you now as you are. So, live up to what God is calling you to and who He has made you to be. Give yourself to those things entirely. If you do, you will see God do amazing, awesome, and exciting things in and through your life. Go and live life enjoying God, who He has made you to be. Glorify Him with all you have and all you are!
Hope this teaching inspires you to live the full calling God has on your life no matter what gets in your way… Age, money, time… God is able to help you over come ALL!!! 😀
