Day 25: Y is for Youth

◄  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 love, in faith and in purity."
   Today's youth has a lot of problems. Some of us don't care enough about school. Some of us drink and do drugs. Some of us think all there is to life is being rich and having as much fun as possible. We've been called the worst generation yet. We've been told we're stupid. People have said that the world is doomed, because what will happen when we start to run the world? Many adults have lost faith in humanity because of us. They look down on us, and treat us like babies. And they're right: there are some teenagers who skip school and drink and do drugs and party every night. But I want to tell those adults that there are other, different teens out there. There are still some who care. There are smart ones. There are some who strive to make a difference. There are some who only want to love. Have a little bit of hope.
   Don't ever let anyone look down on you because you're young; don't ever let anyone tell you your dreams and goals will never be reality. Let's set an example in our speech, our conduct, and our love. Let's prove them wrong, and be the generation that changes the world for the better.


  1. Anna. Gosh. Stop ranting.

    ...joking. =) This is SO true. PULL IT TOGETHER, TEENAGERS! As it says in Jeremiah, do not say you are too young for God will be your guide!

    1. Haha :) Exactly! The youth have a lot of power through God.

  2. Hi Anna,

    I have enjoyed some of your posts in the challenge, but time leaving a comment. I wrote about Youth as well for Y, but from a different perspective.

    I am 61 and the same things were said about my generation, so don't worry. Do the best you can, and follow what is put in your heart by the creator.
