Likewise urge the young men to be sensible.

 

When was the last time you received advice from someone older than you? Many times, advice from a person older than us comes with a testimony of life experience. This testimony is meant to help us understand why they are credible to speak on a subject. It might come with messages like, “Don’t do what I have done,” or “This is what I did, and it worked great!” If we are listening, these conversations can be formative as they give us perspective on our stage of life from someone that has lived through something similar.

 

In the same way, the wisdom you have can also be helpful and formative to someone else. You have wisdom and experience that can be shared with the next generation to help as they navigate their current stage of life. The young men in this passage needed others of sound wisdom to pour into them. They needed guidance on what it meant to be sensible. As adults, we often think about pouring into people younger than us, but we don’t always consider that we still have things to learn too. Discipleship is a chain reaction that spans across many generations. Just because we have reached a certain stage or age does not mean that we have arrived at a point where we don’t need the wisdom of others. Throughout life, we are growing and learning, maturing and changing. We all need to pour into and be poured into. We all need to be growing into the image of Christ each day.

 

  • Who is pouring into you spiritually? Who are you pouring into?
  • What are some challenges of multi-generational discipleship?
  • Pray and ask God for someone specific to pour into and for someone to pour into you.
