16 Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.
4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
2 Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
17 Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.
35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40 And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers,[a] you did it to me.’
The Apostle Paul writing to young Timothy exhorts him in five areas that ought to be evident during the time of his youth. If they were important enough for Timothy, surely we can benefit from them as well. Below are the goals for each of our youth:
I. Evangelize – I Timothy 4:12
II. Exhort – I Timothy 4:13
III. Exercise his gifts – I Timothy 4:14
IV. Encourage others – I Timothy 4:15
V. Evangelize the lost – I Timothy 4:16
