Young Warriors

This is a short post, but I just wanted to post these thoughts.

1Timothy 4:12
Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young but set an example for the believers in life, in love, in faith and in purity.

We may feel young, inadequate or unprepared but young Christians are God's young warriors. He has clearly written in His word that we can be examples to other believers in several different areas of life. We do need to be careful that we are being a good example. If there are others looking up to you (can be adults, children, siblings), you have a huge responsibility and you must ask God to help you be an example.

In Christ,
~Bethany~

So true Bethany! Thank you for the reminder to be a good example all the time. With all of my younger siblings, I've got eyes on me all the time...good or bad!

Love you,

Thank you for writing this post, Bethany, because as older sisters and brothers who have younger siblings who are seeing what we do, what we say (and how we say it!), and so much more. :)

Thank you for the reminder!

God bless, dear sister.

In Him Alone,
