1 Timothy 4:12

One verse from the Bible that has touched my life is 1 Timothy 4:12--
"Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity" (ESV). 
This verse speaks to Timothy from Paul.  Timothy was a young person, and others might have looked down on him because he was so young--maybe they thought he was a hindrance to older and wiser people.  Paul is saying, "Timothy, don't let them do that.  Show them through your words, your actions, your love/service for others, your faith in God, and your purity."  I really love this verse because it shows me that even young people like me can set the world on fire.
