You are not a statistic.
Stop buckling to the expectations that society has put in place for you. You are not a lazy, selfish fool who takes the easiest route possible. You are a child of God who has the potential to change the world.
Stop being lazy and start showing the world that you can work hard.
Stop being foolish and start making wise decisions.
Stop obsessing over yourself and start obsessing over serving Jesus and loving others.
Christ has made you better than this, and He has great plans for your life. Through His power, you can trump society’s low expectations and achieve more than you could ever imagine.
Do not waste this summer. Put down your phone and choose to work hard, invest in others, and develop your God-given talents. Make your bed, read a book, or volunteer somewhere. Ignore society’s low expectations and prove the world wrong.
“Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, and in purity.” -1 Timothy 4:12
