In any group of people, whether it be a group of youth or a group of adults, you will find the the various members of the tater family. This is also true of the family of God – the church. There will always be people who want to control, who stir things up and agitate, who are quick to proved negative comment. Then there will be those who will simply watch and do nothing, or hesitate to do something. There will be those who pretend to be something they are not. The Bible calls them hypocrites.
Fortunately, in spite of all these, there will be those who accept the call of God to live the life he has chosen.
- Instead of dictators, they will yield to God.
- They will not be content to watch God at work but will join God in His work.
- Their comments will edify rather than tear down.
- Instead of agitators, they will be peacemakers.
- Rather then hesitate, they will boldly step out in faith.
- They will be imitators of Christ, and people will know them by their sweet spirits.
And God will use such youth, to change the world!
So, kind of "tater" are you?
