Brothers and Sisters in Christ -- How to Think About Young Men

Elizabeth Botkin has done it again in her latest article. It is one of those I could have used nine years ago, but I'm thankful for a little sister who has this attitude just from reading scripture.

These two symptoms may seem opposites, but they both stem from the same root problem: a failure to think of the other as “[brothers or] sisters, with all purity” (1 Tim. 5:2)
