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.
-1 Timothy 4:12
OBSERVATION: We are all setting an example and have influence on others each and every day. This is true for the child, the school aged, the middle aged, and the elderly. Today let’s be honest with ourselves in how we are setting an example in relation to these five nouns: speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity.
PRAYER: Father, today we approach your throne with humble hearts. Give us the wisdom to seek YOUR ways in how we live in this community. Help us to see that our big and little actions set an example to those around us no matter how old we are. Fill our hearts with love, faith, and purity so that the example of Christ pours out in our speech and actions.
