Can I do whatever I want when I'm older?
Here's the answer:
Even when you're older, you should still love and obey God.
When you're older, you'll have more choices to make on your own. But God still wants you to follow His rules in the Bible. When some kids grow up, they make bad choices and disobey God because they don't love Him. This displeases God because His ways are the best for everyone's lives. If you obey your parents now and learn to follow Jesus, you'll make good habits and choices that will help when you're older.
Even now, get to know and love God as you read your Bible and pray. The more you learn about God, the more you'll trust His plan, rules, and love for you. You need to keep your friendship with God strong so you'll always remember Him when you become a teenager and adult.
"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young. Set an example for the believers in what you say and in how you live. Also set an example in how you love and in what you believe. Show the believers how to be pure" (1 Timothy 4:12).
"A child is known by his actions. He is known by whether his conduct is pure and right" (Proverbs 20:11).
"Train a child in the way he should go. When he is old, he will not turn away from it" (Proverbs 22:6).
