Millennials often get a bad rap. However, when you critically assess Biblical and recent history, young people have usually been at the forefront of transformational and systemic change in multiple areas of our society. Throughout history God has often used those between 17 to 40 to change the world. From Joseph to David to Esther to Mary and even Jesus, God has never had a problem using young leaders to disrupt the status quo or spark a movement. We even saw that during the Civil Rights Movement when a group of college students initiated the Greensboro Sit-In in North Carolina, and this demonstration gained national attention and set an example for others to follow throughout the Jim Crow South.
In this episode of The Disruptors we discuss what it take to be a "Mission Driven" Millennial like those God has used in the past and even now. Enjoy and share this with someone you know it can help!
Congressman John Lewis is an incredible inspiration because of his dedicated life of service dating all the way back to the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960's. According to Lewis, "Dr. King and Rosa Parks inspired me to get in trouble. Good trouble. And maybe, just maybe, this museum [National Center for Civil and Human Rights in Washington, DC] will inspire a new generation of young people to get in trouble, good trouble, necessary trouble. To make our country and make our world a better place.”
When I thought about "good trouble", I thought about Daniel in the Bible, and the good trouble he got into as a government official with the king he was serving at that time. Watch the Bible study here or listen to the audio of The Disruptors Podcast in my mobile app.
