1 Timothy 4:12

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.
This verse, to me, is all about allowing the Holy Spirit to work through you despite being young. Just because you’re not the oldest, most experienced Christian, doesn’t mean you can’t do great things for God. This verse breaks the Christian walk down into five components: speech, life, love, faith, and purity.I think all of those topics could be analyzed in depth, but no matter what they provide some excellent categories in which you can analyze yourself.

“What comes out of my mouth?”

“What kind of life am I living and what does that say to the world around me?”

“Am I loving my God and my neighbors?”

“Do I really, really trust God?”

“Am I trying to live a life of purity?”

Just mastering those 5 aspects of you life could take years and years! Which is why Christ’s work in us is a life-long process!

God bless,
