What accounts do you follow on Instagram?

Studies show that users between the ages 18-25 years old are the only age group to see a decrease in social media use since 2019.

Another survey was conducted, Gen-Z reported less use of every social app, except TikTok.

Why is this so? You might ask.

With the rate of negativity, toxicity, click baits happening in social apps are alarming, this reduces the usage of most of these apps.

Think of a time you bought a new instrument or equipment.

When you look into the box or container, you'll find a manual instructing you on how to use the equipment.

The same applies to the Bible.

The Bible is a life manual for every human being. It has all you need to survive and overcome every challenge.

The teenage years can be very challenging. Reading the bible can help teens and young adults navigate life seamlessly. They need all the love and encouragement we can give them. Remember that all the devil does is kill, steal and destroy. Don't let the devil penetrate.

These Bible verses for teens can help in tough and challenging times.
