As students, we sometimes tend to believe that life will really begin when we’re older. We have this idea that we won’t truly become the people we want to be until we’re a little more grown up. But Paul reminds us here that this isn’t exactly true. You have the chance right now—as a middle or high school student—to start becoming the kind of person you want to be. Even though you’re young, your life can be an example to others! Is there a positive quality you want to develop in yourself? Ask God to help you start working on that right now. Pray that you’ll be an example to others.
