Here's What I Like About Teenagers

By Barrington Brennen


Teenagers Are:

Adventurous Willing to undertake or seek out new and daring enterprises.  Risk takers.
Bold Similar to adventurous, but also means confident and courageous
Brilliant Exceptionally clever and talented.
Creative Great imagination and original thinking.
Naive Lack of experiences and exposure in life gives them an advantage to face the unthinkable.
Independent Many have difficulty accepting that during the teenage years they only need distant supervision and not hands-on supervision.  They are highly independent and if respected rightly, they will develop into productive adults.
Spiritual They are sincerely seeking for a higher power outside of themselves to add meaning to their lives.  Christian teenagers can be deeply spiritual and connected to God.  Their spiritual commitment surpasses those of adults.

A spiritual and committed Christian teenager

is a force to be reckoned with.  


Quotes for Teens:

Testimonies to Sabbath School Work, page 74, Ellen White

  "The Lord would have young men and women who are rooted and grounded in the truth take advantage of means that will serve to enlarge their conceptions of His work. Let the youth who have a solid experience in the things of God enter seminaries and colleges, and learn to meet the people on their own ground. In this way they may finish their education, and may become light-bearers to those with whom they are called to associate. They will have to meet obstacles in presenting the truth, but these will but make them feel their dependence upon God, and will lead them to seek wisdom from above in order that they may conduct themselves in a way that will have a saving influence upon those for whose salvation they are working."
"Protect your spirit from contamination; limit your time with negative people."

“If you surround yourself with the good and righteous, they can only raise you up. If you surround yourself with the others, they will drag you down into the doldrums of mediocrity, and they will keep you there, but only as long as you permit it.”  Mark Glamack
