To the Young Talented Christian : Childhood and Youth Are Vanity

Being young talented and cute is very beneficial, and actually to your advantage in American hollywood/hip hop/Greco Roman performance-image based culture.

But over here in the kingdom of God we don’t need more kid actors with young dumb cute talent… we actually value maturity, wisdom, growth, faithfulness, and good fruit.

We don’t mind having jobs, keeping marriage covenants, raising godly children, building and serving churches… We press toward the mark and grow up into stability and maturity. Listen up, Grow up, and yes we need your voice but please speak for God and not for yourself!

Ecclesiastes 11
9 Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment.
10 Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart, and put away evil from thy flesh: for childhood and youth are vanity.
