KNOWLEDGE

Read Proverbs 20:15 (https://bit.ly/3zGaBoZ)

My generation love to express emotion and love to share knowledge through various channels and means. It’s beautiful. Hearing about other’s experiences and seeking trusted support and counsel is another way for us to gain knowledge and wisdom. Learning and understanding the world around us is another cool way for us to be relatable and relevant.

But we need to remember, especially as young Christians, that the word of God needs to be our foundation. We need to hunger after what is true and allow the Holy Spirit to guide and educate us. Let’s get plugged into the ultimate source of knowledge – the word of God.

A REASON FOR THE GOOD AND THE BAD.

Read Ecclesiastes 7:14 (https://bit.ly/3xRvFZm).

Looking at the concept of a flower, a seed is planted. For the seed to grow it needs a good amount of sunlight, good nourishment from fertile soil, and water (RAIN).

We need the sunshine but we also need the rain to grow. I read this quote that said: “Rock bottom will teach you lessons that mountain tops never will”!

When you’re in your rainy season, introspection, thought, relying on God and trusting Him takes place – and these things strengthen our faith. Embrace these rainy days, they are there for our growth.

CELEBRATION INSTEAD OF COMPARISON.

Ever heard of that saying, “comparison is the thief of joy”? Proverbs 14:30 (https://bit.ly/2GOZhuN) adds to this.

It is so important for us as growing, young people to be at peace with ourselves, with our journey, with our calling. This is not always easy, because it seems we’re always comparing. Sometimes unintentionally.

Comparing and envying another person’s journey is just so tiring, and does not benefit us in any way. Let’s aim to be happy for our neighbour when they succeed, and use that as encouragement and hope, instead of fuel for jealousy.
Let’s celebrate each other and our wins – big or small.

GUIDANCE.

In our daily walk with God – we often come across concepts, questions and things we would want extra clarity on.

After spending time in the word of God and asking the Holy Spirit to help us understand what we’ve just read, we could also seek extra guidance/counsel.

“For a lack of guidance, a nation falls, but victory is won through many advisors.” (Proverbs 11:14https://bit.ly/3dLS56j) Proverbs 20:18 (https://bit.ly/3hUG9Av) and Proverbs 15:22 (https://bit.ly/2q6lP40) add on to and encourages us to find others wiser to give us advice and share their wisdom.

Someone else’s perspective, their age difference, their experiences, all add to our knowledge and growth.
