Youth Column Articles

Standard

How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word.

With my whole heart I have sought You;
Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments!

Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You.

Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.
Psalm 119:9-11, 105

These are articles that were published in a feature called ‘Youth Column’ in the Dhyanamalar mostly during the years 2004 and 2006. (My sister-in-law Vinotha Surendar has translated them in to Tamil. ) They were prepared for young people in a small church in a city in Tamil Nadu, India. So readers from other parts could occasionally find the context something that they cannot relate to because of cultural differences. Having said that, let me hasten to add that the Biblical principles that are highlighted in these articles are universally relevant to Christians everywhere.
