Text: Ecclesiastes 12:1-7.
“Don’t let the excitement of youth cause you to forget your Creator. Honor him in your youth before you grow old and say, “Life is not pleasant any more,” verse 1 (LASB).The excitement of youth without God can be deceitful. Old age without God can be regrettable, miserable and lonely.
Let pleasure in your youth be restrained otherwise it can cause misery in your old age, in case you survive. However, in Christ we are more than conquerors bearing years full of wonderful godly testimonies with God working wonders in our lives.
Reflect on verse 1, what is God teaching you in this verse, and how are you going to apply it to your life and friends?
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, I pray for the youth in this nation to restrain themselves from the ungodly pleasures of youthful life.
I pray for the old to rest in You and others to forgive themselves of wrong choices they made in their youthful years. Amen.
