I remember meeting Rebekah Goodwin Lynch. I was in awe of her knowledge of the Word but even more so the way she lived it out. Her representation of Christ at such a young age was something I hadn’t encountered before. She was a living example to those around her, young or old. She was 16 at that time, give or take a year. 

(To this day I consider her one of the strongest Christian women that I know–and I continue to learn from her every time we’re together.)

So when my daughter dressed up today as a 100 year old lady to celebrate the 100th day of school I was reminded of Bekah: the maturity in Christ doesn’t have to match the age of the body. 

Through this little celebration I was reminded again that we don’t have to be a certain age to be considered founded in the Lord. That no matter what our age we can be an example to those around us. And that not only “we can” but we should.

God loves you. He’s calling you to grow closer to him no matter if you just started following him today or eighty years ago. He wants you to be a living example.
