"Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity" 1 Timothy 4:12

Timothy was a young man who grew up in a single family home, raised by his grandmother and mother. Paul the apostle met Timothy as a young man and mentored him for many years. Paul would often refer to Timothy as a son in the faith. Because of Paul's investment in Timothy's life, this young man was able to be influential as a pastor in the lives of other. Paul later writes to Timothy to invest what he has learned into others.
