You are a Masterpiece

For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works,  which God prepared in advance for us to do. Eph 2:10

Can you wrap your head around this verse? You were made in the image of God, His workmanship. A masterpiece. You have been crafted and created by design. That design was set up before you were born so that you would accept Him as Lord, move towards His purposes, and start doing good things that put a smile on His face. You've had other options. All of us have. But at some point we all realize that someone has their eye on us. Someone is watching over us.

Be a Good Example!

1 Timothy 4:12 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

Like a child that comes to God without reservation and all of the distractions that more years and responsibilities can bring. 
Don't discount yourself. Be the example. In what you say and do. Let your words and your actions be clear and up-lifting. Share your affection and your faith. Be genuine, authentic and pure: undefiled. 
Sometimes the more miles you have on your life the more cynical you get. While you are young(and you are!) embrace your youth. Stay close to the Lord and live right. Be a good example...better yet be a God example! And when you get older, you can remain wise!
