“The ministry is a character profession. Godly character creates moral authority. Ultimately, godly character wins over those who would naturally look down on one’s youth. The first thing, second thing, and third thing for a young pastor is the cultivation of character! Not to do so is to despise his youth by neglecting to grow in godliness when he is most flexible” (R. Kent Hughes, 1, 2 Timothy and Titus [Wheaton: Crossway, 2000], 115).
