Morning Coffee 8/11/16 Young & The Elders

Read 1Peter 5:1-5

5 In the same way, you younger men must accept the authority of the elders. And all of you, serve each other in humility, for “God opposes the proud but favors the humble.” – 1 Peter 5:5 NLT

Hello family, In todays world It is the young vs the old. Some youth are ambitious and are eager to get there plans moving. And they don’t want to hear the wisdom from their elders. On the others side the some elders want nothing to do with the youth they don’t want to hear anything new that the youth have to share.

This is not how it should be! Youth! God sees your ambitions and knows you are ready to take on the world. But hear the wisdom of those who have gone before you. They may keep you from making a mistake that can be costly, you do not know it all. So submit to those over you.

Elders! God has placed these ambitious youth under you for a reason. Do not crush the fire they  have by not allowing them room to grow the gifts that God has given them. How will a harvest be reaped if new seed is not planted? You are there to nurture that seed until God moves it from

you.

Youth and Elders! Work together to accomplish the mission God gave you! “A house divided will not stand!” You need each other!

Much Love & God Bless
