1 Kings 11:28 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching.

1 John 2:13-14 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

I am writing to you who are mature in the faith because you know Christ, who existed from the beginning. I am writing to you who are young in the faith because you have won your battle with the evil one.

I have written to you who are God’s children because you know the Father. I have written to you who are mature in the faith because you know Christ, who existed from the beginning. I have written to you who are young in the faith because you are strong. God’s word lives in your hearts, and you have won your battle with the evil one.

"young man"

Is there a problem with being young? yes, there is in the administration level, old man have experiences while young man can only boast of their strength. It's enough for Jeroboam to gain more experiences. If they will not live wisely according to GOD's Words, then they could be tempted to give in to the sins of youth, because being young comes also temptations.
