On one particularly cheerful and sunny day a father was enjoying a sweet glass of lemonade, while comfortably reclined in his lawn chair reading the newspaper, when his son came up to him.

"Dad, will you take me to the zoo today?"

"No," his father replied, thinking mostly of the news article he was reading, "If they want you, they can come and get you."

In your youth, does your behavior reflect that of Paul's admonition to Timothy?

Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.

Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery. Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all. Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee. -1 Timothy 4:12
