Reflections on the Scriptures for Youth Ministers
1st Sunday/Zaccheus Sunday
1 Tim 4:9-15 -- St Timothy was a young man when the Apostle Paul wrote this letter to him. Timothy had been given great responsibility for a person his age and St Paul has high expectations for him. Today we ten to isolate youth from these kinds of responsibilities and expectations, thinking that they 'aren't ready' for them, St Paul reminds St Timothy to be an example to everyone in speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity.
