  • Samuel 17:42And when the Philistine looked and saw David, he disdained him, for he was but a youth, ruddy and handsome in appearance.

    This comes from the story of David and Goliath, where the little tyke and youngster David slayed the giant Goliath. It shows that no matter the size or strength, it’s possible to tackle even the most intimidating of foes.

    Luke 1:26-33In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. And the virgin’s name was Mary. And he came to her and said, Greetings, O favored one, the Lord is with you! But she was greatly troubled at the saying, and tried to discern what sort of greeting this might be. And the angel said to her, Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.”
  • Peter 5:5-9Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world.

    It seems young people may already be learning this lesson, too, about humility, given that millennials are more humble than baby boomers, according to a Psychological Science study. Sure, millennials are taking selfies. But otherwise, the tough economic times have made millennials appreciate the things they do have, the study found.

    Ephesians 6:1-3Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your father and mother — which is the first commandment with a promise — that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.

    It’s important to take care of your elders, and that’s something that millennials are definitely doing. Take these youngsters for example, who switched clothes with their grandparents and their parents to take some intriguing photos. In fact, some of the photos show that the modern day clothes are actually paying homage to the ones of an earlier time.
