The Book of 1 Timothy Does Not Put Age as a Factor on Ministry Leadership or Pastoring
For young people, taking on the task of discipling an older person can be intimidating. An older person has more life experience. Still, an older man with no character is still a characterless man. Therefore, young people let no one despise their youth by learning and applying wisdom early on.
David was the youngest of his father's sons. He was not just a simple shepherd boy, but a mighty youth full of the Spirit of the Lord. (I Samuel 16:13) He was skilled with the harp, and spent much of his quiet time writing songs of praise to God. David had a warrior spirit, which empowered him to fight off wild animals that threatened his father's sheep. He was ruddy, and pleasant to the eyes. David was submissive, and a diligent worker, and obedient to his father's commands. And he was a marksman with a slingshot.
