I am a Christian family man, Lay Pastor and writer from Deep East Texas. I love life, and I enjoy working with young people. I have published two books; "A Small Mind Among Tall Trees" and "God If You Are Not Too Busy, Can You Give Me a Hand". If you want to obtain a copy drop me an e-mail or go to or barnesand . I have been a salesman, cowman and athlete in my past. I still have a strong sense of humor and am not afraid to use it.

1 Timothy 4:11-16

Relax, Read and Reflect.
Prayer: Dear Lord, Open our hearts and open our minds and help us learn. Go-Fight-Win. Amen.
11Command and teach these things. 12Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity. 13Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching. 14Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through a prophetic message when the body of elders laid their hands on you.
15Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. 16Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.
Re- Read this passage, especially verse 12. Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young! Timothy was a young man, but he did great things. Young people can do great things through out the world, they have not been beaten down by life, they do not understand the limitations society (not life) puts on them. Live life, but live a life for Christ!
Timothy was ordained by prophecy, but even he had to read to stay up with God. This is something we all need to work on, reading both Old and New testaments. This keeps us close to the Holy Spirit as well as give us continuing education. Be diligent, live your spiritual life as you would live any part of your life, wide open.
Prayer- Lord, give me the strength to live a Godly life and let me live it to the maximum. You deserve nothing less. Go-Fight-Win. Amen.
