Why in this day and age do we have such a low standard for young people?

1 Timothy 4:12

   Let no man depise your youth, but be an exsample to the believers, in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity

What happend to the standards? Where did the go? Why did they change?

God used young people all through History. He used King David. Before David was king he was a shepard boy. God used him to kill the Giant. Let skip ahead a little bit to Mary. She became the mother to the Savior at a young age. God used a young woman to bring forth His son. There are so many others.

We don't have to be an adalt before we can do great things for God.

Young people don't do anything to help out. They are given what ever they want. They are not made to work for anything. We need to get that back.

We some how have to raise the standard back up. We need to hold young people to a higher standard then are being held to right now. Young people need to get up off the coach. They need to learn the thing that are getting throu at them the frist time that they leave home. Young people need to start doing things.

Young peopleyou need to stand up and sand ferm. We need to get young people to care. 

Help find that standard. Help bring it back!

  1. That is so true, Jordan! Thank you so much for sharing that, it is not an easy thing to expose, but it is a needed thing to expose. The years of our youth can be the most valuable. Even Christians need to see this truth. They need to see that the teen years should not be wasted away with "having fun", but in building and furthering the Kingdom. What so many young people are missing out on now is really a great, fulfilling, wonderful walk with The Lord and the joy that comes from being in His presence. No, I'm not going to say, "get busy for Jesus". I am going to say, "get to know Jesus." Spend time at His feet, humbly praying. As Oswald Cahmbers says is his book, My Utmost for His Highest, "prayer is not the preparation for a greater work, it is the greater work", so prayer is not the preparation for the battle, it is the battle.
    There is a warfare going on this very moment, and Heaven waits in the prayers of the faithful to win back the hearts of the the world.
