"Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young. Instead, set an example for the believers through your speech, behavior, love, faith, and by being sexually pure."
1 Timothy 4:12
A lot of times in churches and out in the world, the younger people are looked down upon or slighted because of their age. While the Bible teaches that the older a person is, the wiser they are- it also teaches that young people can set an example of what being a Christian means as well.
Throughout your life you will come across people older than you, and while the Bible teaches you to revere your elders, you sometimes may find that their actions, words, or appearances aren’t very godly. In this case, you would want to be sure to be an example of what God has done in your life.
Just because someone is older than you does not mean that everything they do is right or that it is okay to follow in their footsteps. While being respectful, maintain your relationship with Christ in all things you do.
A lot of young girls feel anxiety when their prom or even homecoming is approaching. Whether it be the anxiety of what they’re going to wear, or if they will be faced with peer pressure, or whether or not they can dance- most girls will deal with these common fears.
However, when it comes to school dances, the most important thing to remember is to have fun, be yourself, and be godly.

It’s been ten years, officially, since Joey, Phoebe, Ross, Rachel and the Bings walked their children out of their pastel painted apartments forever.

Hell, even Joey got…Joey and that cable show we can’t remember but heard was good. The gang’s done well for themselves, but remember when things were not so great? When Ross called his fiance by Rachel’s name? When Chandler was forced onto a plane to Yemen?

Let’s flip back through the early 2000s at the 10 best most memorable Friends exes to commemorate our own 10 years away from our favorite show. 10.

I thought that this picture was great. So many Christians that I have met believe that if someone is committing a sin that they don’t like, or that is commonly preached about during the sermons at their church, that they have the right to hate that person or treat them differently. Let the one who is without sin cast the first stone.
I find the rawest prayers in my life go a little something like this:
"God I don’t trust You, I don’t believe Your Word like I should, I don’t hate my sin like I should, I don’t have faith, I don’t have patience, I don’t have self control, I’m angry all the time, I’m restless, my mind is filthy and my heart is wicked. Save me and help me be like Your Son, Your Spirit is my only hope. Only by Your power can I hope to ever please You."
Be raw with Him today, He already knows your heart. No need to lie or put up a front. If you’re mad at Him, shout it out. If you’re tired of waiting on Him, let Him know. It’s at the end of our rope that we find Him.
"Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
