As a youth, we need to ask God for:

1. A LEARNER’S HEART 1. Learn for God’s glory, your edification, and the furtherance of the Gospel. 2. To know, knowledge are used at least 51 times in Proverbs. 3. Weigh all learning through the knowledge of Jesus Christ (II Peter 3:18).

2. AN UNDERSTANDING HEART 65 times in Proverbs 1.

2.

To be able to interpret what you learn (above) in God’s perspective (Proverbs 2:10,11). To be able to understand yourself first (Proverbs 4:7-9) and then others.

3. AN HONEST, TRANSPARENT HEART 1.

What you can’t understand (above), share with the person giving you the real or imagined problem (Matthew 5:23,24).

4. A PURE HEART 1.

2.

3.

In an increasingly amoral world we must flee youthful lusts (II Timothy 2:22). Young men and women overcome by letting God’s Word live within (I John 2:14). Don’t be a loner – go out two by two (Mark 6:7).

5. A DISCRETIONARY HEART in Word and in Deed 1.

2.

To know the difference between that which unnecessarily offends and the inoffensive (Proverbs 2:11). Lord, help me not to be a stumbling block to younger Christians (I Corinthians 8).

6. A RESPECTFUL HEART 1.

2.

You may not agree with or understand someone, but respect him for his work’s sake (I Thessalonians 5:12). Notice in I Timothy 5:1,2 the intricate relationships that young Timothy must observe.

7. A DISCIPLINED HEART 1.

One that chooses against oneself in all matters great or small (Luke 9:23). What you are will be your message (II Corinthians 3:2,3):

8. A SERVANT’S ALERT HEART 1.

Become a load-lifter. Anticipate what would be helpful and then do it. Study the greatest servant in all of history, Jesus Christ (Mark 10:42-45).

9. A COMMUNICATING HEART 1. This is the counterbalance to merely “being a good example.” Communicate by word, the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2. Acts uses words like witness, teach, tell, proclaim, etc., 113 times or an average of four per chapter. 3. Your personal testimony, backed by God’s Word are your greatest weapons (Revelation 12:11).

10.A PRAISING, THANKFUL HEART 1. If you learn this through loneliness, problems, misunderstandings – you will be A-OK with God. 2. In everything give thanks (I Thessalonians 5:18; Ephesians 5:20; Hebrews 13:15):
