earn it

{Preface: I still think I’m young.  Please don’t tell me otherwise and burst my happy bubble.}

It amuses me how much we pay attention to the first half of 1 Timothy 4:12…. and how rarely we live up to the second.  Come on, kids.  We can do better than this. No one is entitled to idiocy or respect merely because of youth.  

Paul says to 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.”

“Don’t look down on me!”
“Wellll…is there a reason I should look up to you?”
