The youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow. They are the ones who will be tasked with making the world a better place for all. As such, it is important that they be given every opportunity to succeed.
One way to help ensure the success of our youth is to provide them with access to quality education. This means ensuring that schools have the resources they need to provide a well-rounded education, including art and music programs, which help foster creativity and critical thinking skills.
We must also give young people the opportunity to get involved in their communities and learn about civic engagement. This can be done through volunteer programs, internships, or even simply encouraging them to vote in elections.
Lastly, we must remember that the youth are not the future, they are the present. We must work to ensure that they have every opportunity to succeed in whatever endeavor they choose. By doing so, we can help build a better tomorrow for everyone.
What Does Bible Say About Youth?
One of the most famous verses about youth is Psalm 127:
“Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.”
This verse speaks to the importance of raising children in a godly home, and that they are a blessing to their parents.
Proverbs 22:6 says
“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.”
This is another reminder that it is important to teach our children about God from a young age. As they grow older, they will continue to follow the path that has been set for them.
Finally, 1 Timothy 4:12 says
“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.”
This verse reminds us that even though we are young, we still have an opportunity to lead others in the right direction. We can show them what it looks like to follow Christ through our words and actions.
