1 Timothy 4:12 (ESV) Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.
*People often believe that the older you are, the more life you've experienced and you have more to share with others. That can be true, but young people go through things as well and should serve as living testimonies to help others. As a young person or even if you feel young, it is not our job to just take from people and look for empathy. We are meant to encourage people through love, and not look down on them. We are also meant to share our mistakes. We are called to exercise our wisdom, and share our experiences no matter our age while representing God. If you know better, than do better and share with others to help people heal or not make the same mistakes as we did time and time again. It's not about age as it is about taking action, and being a living testimony for God.
