Ear to the Next Generation
The next generation is coming. They are the ones who will carry on the work of the church in the years to come. And it is our job to prepare them for that work.
We do that by mentoring them. We listen to them. We learn from them. And we share our wisdom with them.
We need to be open to the new ideas and perspectives that the next generation has to offer. We need to be willing to learn from them, just as they are willing to learn from us.
Together, we can build a strong and vibrant church that will reach the next generation for Christ.
Here are some practical ways to mentor the next generation:
We can also learn from those younger than us. They have a different perspective on the world, and they can teach us new things. We can learn from their creativity, their energy, and their passion. We can also learn from their mistakes, so that we can avoid making the same ones ourselves.
When we learn from those younger than us, we become more open-minded and more understanding. We also become more effective in our ministry, because we are able to connect with people from different generations.
So let's listen to the next generation. Let's learn from them. And let's work together to build a strong and vibrant church for the future
