Youthful Influence

Trevor Bayne

Trevor Bayne became an overnight sensation when he recently won the Daytona 500 at the age of twenty. Conan O’Brien quipped that what was even more incredible was that he was texting the whole time. Someone else joked that Bayne was the only driver to ever win a major race with only a learner’s permit.

Young people sometimes surprise us with their ability to succeed in life. However, God has a way of using young people in important ways. David was a youth when he defeated Goliath in battle. Mary is thought to have been a teenager when she gave birth to Jesus.

Paul wrote the following words to a young man named Timothy: “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.” (1 Timothy 4:12).

Let’s encourage the young people in our lives to be all they can be and to make a difference in the world around them. They can be a positive influence, and we should exhort them to do just that.
