Passage – 1 Timothy 4:12

For Brent it has been, “Aren’t you a little young?”
The verse that has changed Brent’s life is: 1 Timothy 4:12 Don’t let anyone look down upon you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity.

- Pay attention to your life.
- Pay attention to your love.
- Pay attention to your faith.
- Pay attention to your purity.
