Remember Your Creator in Your Youth

Great reminder from David Murray:

Our enemy says, “Youth for pleasure, middle age for business, old age for religion.”

The Bible says, “Youth, middle age, and old age for your Creator.”

In Eccl. 12:1 we read: “Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth, before the evil days come and the years draw near of which you will say, ‘I have no pleasure in them.’”  Why?  Because our early years, writes David Murray, are:

1. Energetic years

2. Sensitive years

Far more of us become Christians in our youth than in our middle or old age.

3. Teachable years

4. Dangerous years

Read Murray’s wise exhortations.
