Written by Matthew, age 15 from Sanford, Florida, USA
When I was in middle school, I believed that God couldn’t use me because I was too young or incapable of doing anything important in God’s plan. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has felt this way! As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that a lot of other middle schoolers felt that way, too. When we’re young, we might hear that we are too young to make an impact in the world from people like our teachers, parents, or friends. But the good news is that no matter how old we are, or how much experience we have, or even what other people think of us, we are never too young to be part of what God is doing in the world. We can be an example to EVERYONE, no matter how old they are! Each of us has a unique role in God’s plan to make the world a better place.
So today, think about this: What’s one way you can be part of what God is doing to make the world better right now, with whatever you have?
