1 Timothy 4:12

 "Don't let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity."

People often think that they are incapable of making a difference. Whether it's because of how they view themselves, or things people have said about them, they think they're incapable to doing big things that God has set in their hearts.

I have felt many times that I am too shy to be a leader, a pastor, a missionary. Too small. Not smart enough. But God says we are to be an example to our peers and everyone around us! And I've learned that I can be a missionary in my own backyard. It doesn't take much at all!

All the thoughts I have had about how I can't talk to people about my faith are gone. Disappeared.

I am not ashamed of my faith, so I choose to show it, with my Facebook posts, with my devotions, with how I talk to people.

YOU can be a leader. You can be a missionary, here or in a third world country. If God has put something amazing on your heart, don't ignore it!

Set that example, for your friends, family, church family, no matter how young or old.

You are powerful.

Go out and set an example!
