Thirty year olds have a lot to offer, and the world has a lot to lose if they are overlooked.
Thirty is a pretty significant age. David was 30 when became king. Joseph was 30 when he became the governor of Egypt. Levites were 30 when they went to work of the Tent of Meeting. Luke 3:23 says, “Jesus himself was about thirty years old when he began his ministry.”
First, let’s be sure we engage every man 30 years of age and younger with a credible offer of Christ and the resources to grow. If we wait much longer, we’ll be into remedial work—after a man has ruined not only his own life, but a good woman and two or three children as well.
Second, identify and groom your best young men for leadership. By divine coincidence, we have assembled a “trans-generational” leadership team at Man in the Mirror. Younger men are making contributions I would have never imagined possible—mostly because they have been given the opportunity.
Are you overlooking anyone?
