Devotional: Young, But Not Despised

Christian Devotion about being young and serving the Lord



"...Let no one despise or think less of you because of your youth, but be an example (pattern) for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity..." - 1 Timothy 4:12 (AMPC)

We sometimes, unknowingly, look down upon young believers. We may think they have a lot to learn and lack more mature understanding in spiritual matters. Though, at times, there may be an element of truth in that, God can mightily use our young people. God will use anyone willing to be used of Him.

A person may be young in years, but it does not exclude them from hearing God's voice. In fact, it's quite the opposite. Young people (especially children), have such a trusting faith. Look at Samuel! God spoke to him while he was young. He heard the voice of the Lord. Likewise, our young people can be examples for us all.

Though they're young, they're not despised
For they are ambassadors of Jesus Christ.
