“Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them”
The foundation of a house profoundly influences the structure built upon it. Anyone involved in constructing a house understands the crucial need for a well-laid foundation, ensuring resilience against storms, whirlwinds, and other challenges.
Our youthful days mirror a house foundation. Our actions during this period shape the trajectory of our lives. There are decisions we take during our youthful day that will live with us as long as we exist.
It’s unwise to think, “I’ll waste my youthful days on sinful living, but when I’m older, I’ll settle down.” Life doesn’t operate that way; it’s akin to an investment portfolio. Whatever you invest now is what multiplies and yields returns for you in the future. Remember, the glory of the youths is in their strength.
Therefore, be cautious, young one. Be mindful of the company you keep and the pursuits you engage in. The wisest decision is to surrender to God’s ways. Make that decision NOW!
