‘Give me a chance to tell you your value’
Not Any Kind of Youth (“Mesh Ay Shabab” in Arabic) is aimed at helping young people to understand their value to God and how they can have a fruitful spiritual life. It addresses topics such as self-image, money, fear and relationships. Young people are invited to share their personal experiences, interspersed with music from Christian bands.
In an episode about self-worth, Neveen Fikry, former member of The Better Life worship group, shared her reflections on the subject:
“We hear many youth saying, ‘I want to find a group where I fit in’, as if they are lost and without worth… People are not consistent; they change, their mood changes and so in their eyes you are going up and down all the time. You will feel unsteady if you rely for your self-worth on people’s opinions. But today God is calling you and saying, ‘Give me a chance to tell you your value to me.’”
This episode also featured a humorous sketch involving young adults imagining various advertising claims coming true, such as becoming thin after drinking a special tea and getting fairer skin after using a certain cream. The sketch conveyed the message that while the promises that bombard us every day turn out to be false, the promises of the Bible are always true.
