Youth for Christ
Read 1 Chronicles 24:1 through 26:32
Young and old alike, teacher as well as student, cast lots for their duties (1 Chronicles 25:8).
This section chronicles the assigning of musicians for ministry in the house of the Lord. The musicians drew lots for their duties. Each person had an equal chance to serve. Submitted to their fathers’ supervision, even the young people were skilled, willing, and capable of ministering in music wherever the lots cast them—wherever the Lord led them.
The past decade has seen an insurgence of young people in the Church who are eager to take up their crosses and follow Jesus. They don’t worry about money or planning a secure future; they have placed their trust fully in Christ for their guidance and security. They are sold out to Jesus and making a difference in the Kingdom. They are more serious and outspoken than their parents. There seems to be urgency about them—their hearts are on fire. God seems to have cast lots among them and has assigned them to Kingdom work.
Challenge for Today: Pray for and encourage the young people you know. Believe in and support their callings.

Should We Give?
Although the topic has been abused by some in the name of religion, the Bible is very clear about giving of our resources to support the ministries that regularly contribute to our journey.
