A Youthful Example

S. O. A. P.

Here’s your 90 second AM devotional!


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 conduct, in faith, and in purity.


Once again the old man of God, Paul, speaks to the young man of God, Timothy. He encourages him not to let anyone look down on him because of his youth. And the way to counteract people’s judgment is to be an example in every category of life.


Okay, let me first of all apologize for my generation. At this point, if we’re not careful, “My Generational Team,” is way too judgmental of young adults. But I’m thankful to say that I am seeing all over the world a vibrant “Young Force For Good” who have thrown off any feelings of animosity towards the generation above them, and have determined not to let people of any age look down on their YOUTH. Instead they are rising up as the “Word of God” instructs them to, to be shining examples of the goodness and the grace of God displayed in their lives. Age after all, is more often than not a “State of Mind” rather than ones “Year Of Birth.” I’ve determined at whatever age … I, Rich Wilkerson, will be … “A Youthful Example.”


Dear Jesus,

I must admit … I do have AGE on MY side. But when it comes to living a life worthy of being called a “Follower of Jesus” … I want to be “A Youthful Example.” Amen
