WHO ARE THE CONQUERORS?
The CONQUERORS are teens who have made a commitment to conquer violence, drugs, gangs, unemployment, illicit sex, and we are dedicated to
not drop out of high school.
12 Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young,
but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
1 Timothy 4:12 (NIV)
(A Bible Study for Teens)

When someone’s referred to as a “good example,” most likely that person is middle-aged or older. We tend to look to those who are older than we are for inspiration, figuring they have more experience and wisdom. That is not necessarily true; there are plenty of old fools around.
Don’t rule yourself out of the good-example population because you’re young. Being a good example has nothing to do with age and everything to do with how you live your life. You can be a good example in kindergarten, providing you don’t run with scissors.
You don’t have to be a Goody Two-Shoes, but you should try to live your life with courage and fairness and faith.
If you can do that long enough, you’re on your way toward becoming a good example. A good reputation opens doors that might otherwise stay closed to you.
