    Keep working out your own salvation with fear and trembling.Phil. 2:12.


    As a young baptized Christian, you are now responsible for your own salvation, even if you still live under your parents’ roof. Why is it important to remember that? Because you will face new feelings and pressures as you enter and pass through adolescence.

    One teenage girl put it this way: “A child usually won’t resent being one of Jehovah’s Witnesses just because of not having a piece of birthday cake at school. But in a few years when the urge to have sex becomes stronger, he or she needs to be thoroughly convinced that obeying Jehovah’s laws is always the best choice.” Even those who got baptized as adults face many unanticipated tests of faith.

    Such tests may have to do with marriage, health issues, or employment. Really, everyone, regardless of his or her age, will encounter situations that require faithfulness to Jehovah.—Jas. 1:12-14.

    Yes, problem solving and decision-making are life skills. It's a process - listing the choices, thinking through each choice and the consequences of following that choice and then choosing the most suitable or relevant one.

    Weighing up the pros and cons.
