“People will not be ashamed of the small beginnings, and they will be very happy when they see Zerubbabel with the plumb line, measuring and checking the finished building” (Zechariah 4:10).
Young people, “let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity” (1 Timothy 4:12). You may feel intimidated when you compare yourself with others who have gone ahead and achieved much. But don’t despair for you’ve just started. Press on for the home run.
