Daily Devotion: Y – Youth

Bible Reading:  Proverbs 7:6-27     

Key Verse: Verse 7 - And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,”

Key Words: a young man void of understanding

The error of youth is to believe that intelligence is a substitute for experience, while the error of age is to believe that experience is a substitute for intelligence.  Both are needed.

Someone wrote the following, whom I do not know, and I found it to be a blessing.  I hope you will as well.

Ø      That a man’s habits are mighty hard to change after he is twenty-one.

Ø      That a harvest depends on the seeds sown.

Ø      That things worthwhile require time, patience, and work.

Ø      That you cannot get something for nothing.

Ø      The value of absolute truthfulness.

Ø      The folly of not taking other people’s advice.

Ø      That what my mother wanted me to do was right.

Ø      That dad wasn’t an old fogey after all.

Ø      More of the helpful and inspiring messages of the Bible.

Ø      The greatness of the opportunity and joy of serving a fellowman.

Ø      That Jesus Christ wants to be my Savior and Friend.

What to do:
✞ Remember, you are only young once; but you can be immature indefinitely.
