Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you n due time: (1 Peter 5:5-6)


As above, the Bible encourage younger specially. I think you’d better consider ‘younger’ as young adult neither boy nor girl for understanding the Bible. They are on an important position in churches. The Bible calls for them to live a submissive life. It means that this submission must be made not only for elders but also for every Christians. In other words, ‘younger’ have to serve everyone in church. Yes, younger are the most active one. They meet all condition for serve others. If they live a submissive life, the churches would get enormous power, that is, the church would get everything they want.


Submission always goes in company with modesty. Younger could be proud because they have many activity and much confidence. Also, they can’t put up with immorality and risk their life for righteousness. However, they have little judgment and experience of elders and make many mistakes. For sure, these mistakes make them mature.


This is the reason of modesty of younger. Does their enthusiasm make their life plentiful? No. Look at Paul. He was filled with passion for the Lord but he used it to persecute Christians. It tells us that just passion cannot make God delightful.


This is the reason of obedience and modesty for younger. They have to use their passion in right way. That is, their passion must be not vain. Now, younger has to open their ears to other people before starting some action. When younger equip themselves with mind of obedience and modesty, they will live a victory life as a Christian.
