Editor’s Introduction

Welcome to YPS May 2021. I hope that this issue finds you well. One of my privileges when compiling and editing YPS is finding new writers and reading what they send me. Last issue we had a couple of new writers, and I really enjoyed their articles – there are more to come, so watch this space. This issue I have the privilege of introducing an elderly brother who has a message that he wants you to read. As you read his article ‘An Upward Look’, I hope that it will encourage you, as this was the reason that he asked me if he could write to you. He is a ‘brother beloved’, and I have the highest respect for him. It is well worth a read.

In this issue, we have the penultimate article on career choices. If, however, there is a career that you are interested in, and we have not covered it, send me a message and we will see if we can persuade someone to write about it.

As I close, I want to leave you with a word of encouragement. If you are still at home more than you prefer, I want to ask you how you are using your time? This could be a period when you can get to know God and His word better. Paul wrote to Timothy, ‘Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth,’ 2 Tim. 2. 15 NASB 1995. May the Lord help us to make this our focus.
