1 Timothy 4:12 (NCV)
12 Do not let anyone treat you as if you are unimportant because you are young. Instead, be an example to the believers with your words, your actions, your love, your faith, and your pure life.
Timothy, Paul’s “spiritual” son in the ministry, was very young, and he was fearful and worried about what people thought of his youth. It really does not matter how old or young a person is. If God calls someone to do something and they have the confidence to go forward, nothing can stop them.
How you respond to your age and, for that matter, how others respond is really up to you. All of us age in years, but we don’t have to get an “I’m too old” or ” I’m too young” mind set. Moses for example was eighty years old when He left Egypt to lead the Israelites to the Promised Land. Confident people don’t think about how old or young they are; they think about what they can accomplish with the time they have left. Keep in mind confident people are positive and look at what they have, not what they have lost.
Even if you are reading this whether your old or young don’t feel as through your going to waste rest your life doing nothing-you can still start today and do something wonderful and great with your life for Christ. Don’t let age stop YOU today.
Let’s Pray: Lord, You used people of all ages throughout the Bible, and You can use me. Today is a new day, and I am excited about What you’ll have me able to accomplish. Amen.
