Justin Beiber - The Importance of Forgiveness

At nineteen Justin Beiber has 42 million Twitter followers – more than Carrie Underwood, Usher, and even Justin Timberlake. Good or bad - he is an influencer among many teens and young adults. Surely, there are lessons to be learned.

“BELIEVE” is a concert documentary that releases Christmas Day. It is a testament to the trials and tribulations of being a star AND being a teenager. It’s not easy. In fact it’s as much a burden as a blessing. Imagine the temptations, the expectations you have to fulfill, the livelihoods you employ. You have the world at your feet, but you won’t have freedom because there are paparazzi stalking your every move willing you to do wrong. You are a star, but any good you do for others won’t make the news as much as the bad decisions you make.

Is it a blessing to have soo much at such a young age, and so much thrown at and expected of you? Do we write this young man off or we capable of empathy and can we believe he can do better?
