"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." ~ I Timothy 4:12
I had a hard time getting a shot of this young one, but here we are - he in his world, and me in mine. Do we ever feel that way about our young people, like we are in different worlds? I've discovered, maybe since I work at a University, that we have a lot more in common than you might think. Yes, our taste in music, clothes, movies, and parties might not always match up, but young people have fears, goals, dreams, questions, and yes, even answers. To stop and have a conversation about what is going on in their world might just lead you to realize that their world isn't a whole lot different. We may have some answers for them, and I know they have some answers for us. Are we listening? Are we getting to know them as the individually, God-created people that they are? Are we letting God use them in our lives?
Here are just a few links to some inspiring young people:
