1 Timothy 4:12-16,
12 Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. 13 Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching. 14 Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through prophecy when the body of elders laid their hands on you. 15 Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. 16 Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.
The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago, but the second-best time is right now.
It’s not getting to the finish line that is the most difficult part of any journey or undertaking; it’s showing up at the starting line.
The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender.
With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall.
