An ant doesn’t need a leader, a supervisor, or a boss to force it to work; its own built-in work ethic motivates it to store up food during harvest time so it has plenty to eat all winter long. ~Proverbs 6:7-8 (Randy Reed Paraphrased Version)

"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young...."   1 Timothy 4:12

This generation thing can get quite complicated. Everyone is valuable; too many people, on the journey through life, believe that they are more valuable than they really are! And too many end up thinking they are of no value at all.
