1 Timothy 4:11-12

"Command and teach these things. Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity."


Young, old, man, woman or child. These are sound instructions from Paul. We should set an example in our homes, in our workplace, in our community, in our church, anywhere where go. Specifically; in words & attitudes we use, in our actions, in our display of love for others, in our spiritual lives and in choosing purity, not becoming like the rest of the world."

That is a challenge. When we can live out the teachings of Christ others will notice, we do not have to even open a bible to show them the love that Christ has poured out on us. We simply will be an instrument of His love.
