Let No One Despise Your Youth

Notes from a sermon preached by Dr. Greg Sloop, Lead Pastor of the Kannapolis Church of God, during their Sunday Morning Worship Service on September 24, 2017 at 10:30 am.  Sermon may be viewed or heard at http://www.kcog.org.

1 Timothy 4:12–5:2 (NKJV)

4:12 Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity. 13 Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine. 14 Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership.15 Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all. 16 Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.

5:1 Do not rebuke an older man, but exhort him as a father, younger men as brothers, 2 older women as mothers, younger women as sisters, with all purity.
