Top 10 Things You Need to Do Now
As a teenager or young adult, it is so easy to waste time on things that don’t matter. Here are ten things you should focus on right now.

10. Take responsibility
⁃ Learn how to cook, clean, iron your clothes, and do laundry. Be a person you would want to marry.

9. Get involved in your church
⁃ Talk to your youth pastor or pastor and make this happen. There is always something you can be involved in.

8. Be kind
⁃ Pay for someone’s coffee. Open doors. Give compliments often.

7. Give
⁃ Read Malachi 3:10-12 and Luke 6:38

6. Limit phone time
⁃ The average teenager spends over five hours per day on their phone accomplishing very little. Limit this time and focus on things that matter.

5. Memorize Scripture
⁃ Hide the Word of God in your heart. “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” (Psalms 119:105).

4. Work
⁃ Work ethic can only be developed by working. Whether it’s a secular job or chores, do it as unto The Lord. Joseph did and look what happened to him.

3. Get Educated
⁃ Go look up the story of Malala Yousafzai. People who don’t know anything can’t change anything. Knowledge is power.

2. Have a positive attitude
⁃ It’s not only good for you but also for those around you. Let’s face it, no one wants to hang out with a negative Nancy. Positive people even live longer.

1. Develop a relationship with God
⁃ God does not expect perfection; He expects faithfulness. Be faithful to obey Scripture in the midst of your mistakes, and you will grow in God!
