1 Timothy 4:12-16

12 Let no man despise your youth; but be an example to those who believe, in word, in your way of life, in love, in spirit, in faith, and in purity.  13 Until I come, pay attention to reading, to exhortation, and to teaching.  14 Don't neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the elders.  15 Be diligent in these things. Give yourself wholly to them, that your progress may be revealed to all.  16 Pay attention to yourself, and to your teaching. Continue in these things, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.
