Something happened this morning as I was reading 1 Timothy 4. I related more to Paul than to Timothy. Last December I turned 40. I still think, and my wife would say ‘act’, like I am 20. But something has changed. My life has taken a turn. No longer am I the pastor trying to prove myself or trying to work so hard to do everything just right. My life is now about how to help the next generation.
See and seize every moment as an opportunity to teach and to mentor.
Start with my own kids and then with the church family.
Be bold in speaking truth, even if the person doesn’t want to hear it.
