Scripture: 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.
Devotional: Whether you are young or old, this passage is a great exhortation for all followers of Jesus. You are called to set an example for others in the areas of what you say, how you act, how you treat others, what you believe, and how you keep yourself from sexually immorality.
Certainly this is a tall order, and it can sometimes be daunting. But you don’t have to do it alone. You have the help of God’s Holy Spirit to lead you, guide you, and give you strength.
Will you call upon Him to do so?
- Who are those in your circle of influence for whom you need to set a good example?
- Whether you are single or married, if you don’t already have an accountability partner in living a sexually pure life, commit to finding someone in the next two weeks to whom you can be accountable.
