Memory verse: “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the LORD, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you”
Text – 2 Corinthians 6:17
Many young people toe the line of crowd, even when they have the opportunity to step out of it. Abraham Lincoln, Sigmund Freud, Martin Luther King Jr., Galileo, Fred Hollows, Napoleon Bonaparte, and Caroline Chisholm, faced the temptation of being like everyone else but chose to pursue their own different dreams. They had the conviction that they could accomplish something great with their own lives, and so they dared to come out of the crowd. You can be like Samuel. He was lent to the Lord and he lived with Eli’s children: Hophni and Phinehas, who chose to throw righteousness, self-control, purity, and the fear of God overboard. Yet, he did not copy their bad examples but “…ministered before the LORD.” (1 Samuel 2:18). Remember that you alone, are responsible for what you make of your life. Others may deride and ridicule you, but press on and do not be intimidated by their actions.
Challenge: You are responsible for what you make of your life.
Prayer: Dear Father, give me the heart of Samuel as I face the challenges of life.
Quote: Do not be intimidated
Further Reading: Revelations 18:4; Isaiah 52:11.
