Author Paula Fox writes, “Our young people today are living messages we send to a time and place we will never see.”
They are on a journey with high hopes, big dreams, lofty goals, successes, disappointments and broken hearts. In the midst of a culture of compromise and upside down values, they need to be equipped with a backpack filled with these four Godly principles:
Do not compromise your values or accommodate the culture. Do not surrender to political correctness. Make your life count for the Gospel. Your testimony is important. Commit to your gifts .
Ask Yourself, “What Pulls at Your Heart?”
Paul writes in 2 Timothy 1:6, “I remind you to fan the flame the gift of God, which is in you.” Share your unique talents and gifts for the glory of God.
Cultivate Your Moral Compass
Sharpen your ability to discern by identifying the truth from error. Think biblically: “Without discernment, we are at risk of being tossed here and there by waves, and carried about by every wind of doctrine ( Ephesians 4:14 ). One’s character is determined by the choices he/she makes.
When Christ commands, “Take courage, I have overcome the world” … Listen! He has already claimed victory. Be at peace. If you are anchored in Christ, there is a glorious future that awaits you at the end of your journey.
Enjoy the ride.
