Our word art comes from the King James version of the Bible. I looked up today's scripture in the NIV and it reads:
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.
Spiritual maturity is not always associated with years. The way you live your life, your actions and words, how you conduct yourself in different situations, manifests your Godly character. God uses even the youngest of us to spread His word and minister to others. Living a Godly life will earn you the respect of others no matter what your age.
When I read today's word, I immediately knew what photo I wanted to use for my layout. We just finished Vacation Bible School at my church and we had a great outpouring of teen helpers. Quite a few of them were mature enough in their spiritual walk to be Crew Leaders. My photo today is of 2 of the leaders. That's my son on the right. Our teens did an amazing job this year. They earned the respect of their crew members because they modeled Godly actions and behaviors. You could see God's light shining through them.
