Don't let anybody tell you that you are too young

The problem here is that, all too often, these are the only voices that are heard.  In churches today, the majority of the population does not fall into the group that we refer to as “elders.”  In fact, it is impossible to ignore the fact that our places of worship are filling each week with a younger generation of Christians that have fresh views and ideas of what it means to worship our Creator and serve God’s people. 

I am not promoting any kind of upheaval or revolution.  I am simply suggesting that the voices of the younger generations should be heard.  “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.” (1Tim. 4:12 NIV)  We are all given very specific, meaningful gifts that are to be used for His glory.  We all have experiences that could be helpful when shared with other believers.  Sharing these experiences and utilizing your gifts are vital for you to grow in your faith, and essential to helping those around you grow.  So even if you feel ignored, speak up.  There is always somebody listening, and you may have just what they need to hear.  Think about it.
