Some youth like to tell others what do do, but don’t want to soil their own hands.
They are called “Dic Taters.”

Some youth never seem motivated to participate, but are just content to watch while others do the work.
They are called “Speck Taters.”

Some youth never do anything to help, but are gifted at finding fault with the way others do the work.
They are called “Comment Taters.”

Some youth are always looking to cause problems by asking others tovagree with them. It is too hot or too cold, too sour or too sweet.
They are called “Agie Taters.”

There are youth who say they will help, but somehow just never get around to actually doing the promised help.
They are called “Hezzie Taters.”

Some youth can put up a front and pretend to be someone they are not.
They are called “Emma Taters.”

Then there are those youth who love and do what they say they will. They are always prepared to stop whatever they are doing and lend a helping hand and bring real sunshine into the lives of others.
They are called “Sweet Taters.”

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, what kind of “tater” are you?
