Teenagers in our society are often looked down upon. They are often described as lazy, apathetic. self-absorbed, and the list goes on. I wanted to set the record straight. Yes, there are teenagers that fit that description, but there are some adults that fit that description as well. Recently, I have been blessed by some of the comments that some of my students have been making as it pertains to morality, truth, and sexual purity. Some of them really do get it. They do not want to follow blindly on the path that society is attempting to set for them. They see the mess we are in and recognize that we are not progressing as a society when we neglect the truths of God for a lie. Their words strike straight into my heart because they know they can make a difference. There are many who are striving not to rebel against God, but to hold to his Truth.
This is why I teach. Because for one thing, there are few callings as special as that of a teacher. When I see my students ‘getting’ it, it makes it all worthwhile.
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
Rise Up, young people, Rise Up!
